Homemade Christmas House Cake

I made this Christmas house cake using 2 cakes. I baked a 9x13 cake and the Wilton Stand-Up House pan. I trimmed out a rectangle to position the cake into. I went about 1.5" into rectangular cake. I recommend making all accessories (such as the items listed below) prior to assembling based and house portion of cake.

I used buttercream icing and melted candy. For walkway I used Fruity Pebbles instead of Rice Krispies Treat recipe and trimmed to desired length an width. I positioned the walkway and trimmed out about a half of inch from the base cake. Secure in cake with some icing.

To make the trees and bushes I used the cornflake wreath recipe and molded them into appropriate shapes. Using various colors melted candy I decorated the trees to resemble lights and snow.

For snowman I formed them using a rolled cookie recipe and just baked them together. I dusted them with vegetable oil and rolled them in powdered sugar.

Once cooled used melted candy to decorate. Using a Swiss Cake roll, melted candy and icing. I made logs with holly berries using red hots. To decorate house I used melted candy squeezed into the door and window sections on the house pan.

Let cool and secure to house cake with small amount of icing. (I traced a medium line around the back of the molded candy an a X across the middle an that always seems to be enough). Using small star time I piped garland around windows and door. Using melted candy I added lights to garland. I used Mike&Ikes for the lights on the roof.

Homemade Christmas Holiday Cake

This was my homemade Christmas Holiday cake.

I used a 10" round pan and made a marble cake, which consisted of a yellow box cake and a chocolate fudge cake mixed together. I put vanilla pudding in the middle of the layers.

The cake was frosted with white canned frosting and then decorated with Wilton's buttercream. Everything on this cake was edible. I took ideas from cakes on here and cakes on line and created this one.

The tree was made out of a large waffle cone, shaped and decorated with frosting to make a white christmas tree. I used a #16 tip for this and pulled the icing to make it look like a tree. I put the tree in the center of the cake.
I then took rice crispies, formed them into little packages and then frosted them with the buttercream frosting. I let them harden a little to smooth the frosting, and then added them to the scene.

To make the snowflakes and small white christmas trees, I melted Wilton's decorating chocolates in a writing bottle, sprayed a metal cookie sheet with Pam, and then drew the snowflakes and trees with the chocolate. I put them to harden in the fridge for ten minutes and then just pulled them off the pan. Pretty simple!

I then decorated the cake with the blue canned icing, using a #3 tip, in accents on the presents and tree!
