We made this Christmas Santa Clause Cake for our child for Christmas. The idea came from a doll house that I had as a child with a tiny version of this cake (you can see it in the picture). Our child liked it also all these years later and asked us to make a real one.
We started with a store-bought cake mix and store-bought icing. We baked it in two 8 X 8 cake pans. We put icing and strawberries in between the two layers. Then we iced the entire top and sides with white icing. We also used an extra tub of icing to decorate the top. We kept the toy Santa Clause cake nearby and tried to replicate it as exactly as possible.
We mixed red and black food coloring with icing in separate bowls to make red, pink and black colors. Then we piped the details on using bakers' bags and decorating tips. We used a thin tip to make the nose, eyes, mouth and cheeks. We used a thicker tip for the eyebrows and beard. It was very simple to make.
Creating the beard was the most fun part. Our child loved it. I highly recommend making one of these for your next holiday party! It doesn't take much more time than making a regular cake, and kids really love it. Our child was absolutely delighted with it.
I made a chocolate cake in a Bundt pan cooked for time on the cake box. I let it cool then took white icing and dyed it green. First I did a crumb coating then put it in the fridge to harden. Then I added another layer of icing to make it smooth. Then placed it back in the fridge to harden.
I took a can of cupcake icing (much easier then piping) with a star tip to make the top of the cake. I left sides smooth. The night before making the cake I made the bow of fondant. I rolled up wax paper to stick in the bow so it would harden over night. I used red m&ms for "berries" and jingle crush for the bells.
Snowmen and ice skating penguins! Such fun. This Christmas snow cake was for my sister in law's annual Christmas bash. It was huge(16x16) and weighed a ton. I made everything on it out of fondant except the rocks, which are made of chocolate and look so great.
The snowmen were made from rice krispies and covered with fondant. The lake is made from sugar and the trees were cookies. It was a huge hit, and no one wanted to cut into it.
My father in law was the first, he tore the head from the snow daddy and that was it, dessert was finally served!
I used a train cake pan and used 2 cake mixes for this Christmas Train Cake idea and cooked them and then cooled at least 2 hours. Then I frosted the cake board with frosting, then layered with candy for the tracks, then placed them were I wanted them to go and decorated with candy and frosting and sprinkled with icing sugar to look like snow.
