I made this Campfire Cake Idea for my outdoorsy boyfriend’s birthday. It is a marble chocolate and yellow cake. I used two 9×9 inch pans and stacked them together filling the cake with a chocolate butter cream frosting. I started by frosting the cake with a butter cream frosting then outlined the lake and path with clear piping gel.
I then colored in the lake with blue dyed piping gel. I then used brown icing to create the path. I piped the rest of the cake green by using a star tip. The tent is made out of a graham cracker broken in half with a pretzel rod holding it up. The bonfire is made out of broken pretzel rods. The flames are dyed butter cream frosting. I added mini marshmallows to toothpicks for a special touch. The tree is simply a sugar cone which I covered by piping with a star tip.
The one thing I regretted was not bringing the path and water all the way down the side. Everyone loved the cake!
