InstructionsEven though it is so different to the course cake, for this one I have used many things learned in the craftsy tutorial: namely the recipe for vanilla cake (which was awesome), the candle, the twisted colour and most importantly the method of measuring a perfect pattern around a cake using folded paper! Thank you Colette!

What was your inspiration?
Little Xander's 1st birthday - obviously a Hoot fan...
What are you most proud of?
The harlequin took a long time to get the measurements perfect but Colette's method made it so much easier! I can improve on it but I just loved that it all fit perfectly!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have fun! I had laid my fondant on the bottom layer badly so was a touch short on one side - that was my inspiration for making the border around the bottom of the cake ;)
