Coolest Boy Scouts Camping Cake

The Boy Scouts Camping Cake was able to feed 80 people. I used gum paste and fondant for the boy scout figures and ginger bread for the house. As for the tress I used rice crisp then piped over them using butter cream frosting. The entire cake was covered in butter cream then sprinkled with powdered sugar for the snow effect.

  1. i was wondering do you mix the fondant and gum paste together. I’m making a cake and was going to use fondant. I also need to make figures so do I mix the two together for the figures?

  2. I did not mix the 2 together. I used fondant for the clothing and gum paste for the bodies. Gum paste seems to harden better then fondant and it molds better. Good luck on your cake I will be posting another cake here in the next week if you need any more ideas and please contact me if you need any help. Thank You

  3. Very nice..question- wont the characters get soft sitting on the buttercream? Making a wedding cake the bride wants buttercream frosting with gumpaste orchids, I haven’t done this before but I believe the orchids will get soft. I don’t want a disaster.
    Thanks

  4. I need to make 3 scouts. I cannot enlarge your picture. Would you be able to email me? Also, I would like to talk to you on how you made them. I purchased cake topper ones but they are really sad looking.
