Inside the round cake was marzipan with red & green cake ..top cakes and top guys.. www.cake-boss.co.uk THANK YOU SO MUCH
I made this camping cake for my nephew. A simple sheet cake which I iced green. I borrowed the vehicle and the "hunter" from my son.
The tent is actually made from paper, I printed the pattern from the internet. The logs on the side of the tent and the ones making up the fire are tootsie rolls. The yellow and red that represent the flames are hard candy.
The trees are fairly simple, just sugar ice cream cones that have been iced green. If you don't have sugar cones, you can die some fondant green and shape them into cone shapes then ice them. I find that you can use just about anything you have around your kitchen or house for that matter, to decorate a cake.
If I use something "non-edible", like the vehicle or the hunter, I wash them in hot, soapy water and let them dry completely before placing them on the cake. I have made the items I have needed out of fondant, which sometimes can be a bit challenging.
This cake was enjoyed by the birthday boy and the family.
My daughter requested a hunting/wilderness related cake for her 12th birthday and this Wilderness Theme Birthday Cake is what I came up with. I started with a basic 13x9 cake mix cake. I dyed buttercream frosting light green to go on the entire cake. I then created evergreen trees using decorator icing dyed dark green and a star tip on ice cream cones.
After that I added shrubbery by using the large star tip and placing the shrubs in random places all over and along the bottom of the cake. I made a river using decorator icing dyed blue and created the rapids with random motions of my fingertips. I added plastic animals including a beaver and beaverdam made of pretzel sticks to the middle of the river and sprinkled granulated sugar all over the cake to look like a dusting of snow.
My daughter's birthday is in January and right now there is 10 inches of snow outside so I thought that would be a neat touch. She loved her cake. I hope you all do too! I had a lot of fun making it!
This cake was made for a friend's son. He was turning 8 and wanted a camping themed cake. The cake is chocolate with chocolate icing. The trees are sugar cones roughly frosted with green buttercream icing. The grass was star tipped, also buttercream. I used 2 graham crackers to make the tent and then wrapped it with a fruit roll-up for added color. The stream was blue piping gel and blue sprinkles. The piping gel made it really look like water! I made all of the "rocks" around the stream and fire out of tootsie rolls cut up into small pieces and rolled into balls. The fire was made out of pretzel sticks and the flames were icing. This was a really fun cake to make and the boys at the party loved it!
