Homemade Camping Cake

My son requested a cabin cake for his 4th birthday. So this camping cake is what I came up with. The cabin is kit kat's stuck together with candy melts. The birds and bear are candy melt molds. The tree is a tootsie roll molded down.

The bunnies are freehand candy melts and the deer is freehand caramels softened and molded with candy melts for the antlers, spots and feet. The deer was my favorite animal.

This was two batches of frosting and a 9 X 13 sheet cake. The fire was store bought candy rocks and the flames were reception sticks broken down and stacked to look like flames.

Very easy to make.

I love your use of candy to make the various things... I'm not very good at drawing so any ways around that just impress me.

Your cake looks amazing...I don't understand how you did that deer?? Caramel and candy? Can you explain further?? And the can buy a candy mold like that? Where??

Someone recently asked me to put a bear and a deer on their cake...I was just thinking of buying plastic ones...but, if I can figure out how to make what you did...that would be GREAT!!

You are very talented!! :)

P.S. - Your cabin is amazing!! I was just going to use graham crackers and use candy melts to stick pretzel rods to it for the "log" look...your way is MUCH easier (and tastier!!) :)

This was a first try for me. My daughter turned seven and was really into the Camp Rock theme. She had asked for two cakes a Camp Rock and a butterfly. I made the Camp Rock in Chocolate. I used ready mix sponge cake recipe. For the Camp Rock cake I visited the Camp Rock Blog downloaded a picture, printed and laminated it for the center of the cake.

Coolest Campfire Cake

This campfire cake is a round cake made with strawberry cake mix. Frosted with chocolate frosting, the best part about this cake is that if it looks a little messy- its OK! The "logs" are cookies, found in the cookie isle. The flames are melted butterscotch and cinnamon candies.
