The Hat cake

This hat signifies my life as it is at this time for I indeed wear several hats. I am a scientist by profession and also a pastry chef, a pilot and an artist. I love to create delicious and interesting confections such as this hat cake. It is a chocolate cake with raspberry chocolate ganache filling and layered with raspberry filling. Buttons are dark chocolate. If it doesent tastes beter than it looks I will eat my hat... this one!

I served this at my college reunion which was a festive event, hats off to the organizers and while we are at it, hats off to Madam Curie, Madam Tussards, Madam CJ Walker, Madam Noor Jehan, Madam Rosmerta and also to all the older graduates of my college who are no longer addressed as "Miss" but are now "M'am".
