Fiesta Margarita! Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have an uncle who's birthday falls right on Cinco De Mayo. I asked him what he wanted for a cake and he requested a sombrero cake. I thought, "how am I going to come up with an idea?" So, I go to the same sight I go to every time I need ideas: Wilton.com. This cake is genius. I just so happened to have the Minnie Wonder Mold Pan. I made one very large sombrero with maracas. The cake came out fabulous! He loved it and best of all, it was super easy to make and following the directions was a piece of cake!
