How the Grinch Stole Christmas

"The Grinch hated Christmas - the whole Christmas season. Now, please don't ask why; no one quite knows the reason. It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight. Or it could be that his head wasn't screwed on just right. But I think that the most likely reason of all may have been that his heart was two sizes too small." or maybe, he knew not how to bake and no one had ever given him his very own cake!!! (yeah, I went there, haha)

I had a blast making this cake. Have I mentioned I love Dr. Seuss? Designing a cake after one of his books is never boring. The cakes are iced in buttercream, all decorations are hand sculpted out of fondant. The features on the Grinch and max (the dog) are hand painted with a food pen.
