Hopping High-Rise Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the Wilton ideas...but sometimes a picture goes a long way in explaining things. Instead of written directions...why not use a small series of pictures of this piece in various stages of its design/structure. I really don't have allot of time to sit and read thru instructions...whereas, a picture...I can follow along faster!!! XO

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Challenging! Whistle while you work and you will be fine! The enjoyment and complements anferwords is all worth every minute of your time. Made for my daughters birthday (who loves bunny rabbits) she was almost in tears when she saw it! It tastes fantastic and is worth all the time in the world to make!! Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been doing cakes since 1980 when I took the decorating class at a whim. I agree with The Chocolate Frog about showing pictures of the different stages.After almost 21 years of doing cakes I have a hard time seeing the tree on this cake come together. Pictures or not I still intend to build this cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We made 2 of these last Easter, they were a "Hopping" success. We added candy molded bunnies and tulips around the base of the hutch. They are really fun to make and look adorable on the table.
