This was a fun and easy decorated cake to make. The hardest part of the whole thing is getting the cookie hat right - I used the pattern and the hat turned out to look a little big compared to the cake. Overall it was tasty and much appreciated by everyone at work. It was also a must to have the picture to refer to - the shaped pan doesn't help with any decorating and pretty much had to be ignored.
Also to make the cake more fun I dyed the batter green!
