Rock Climber Cake

Don’t you hate it when someone’s favorite flavor is German Chocolate? Probably the ugliest combination of frosting on cake that I’ve ever seen. Fortunately, the recipient of this cake is also a rock climber and pecan/coconut frosting looks pretty rocky.

I found the idea for this rock climber cake right here on this very website! I started with a thin layer of honey on the sheet to make the green grass sprinkles stick. Then I added cupcakes and held them in place with chocolate frosting. After I frosted them, I sprinkled chocolate “jimmies” to give an even rockier texture. Then I added a toy action male climber and a female Christmas tree ornament climber and tied them both to the candles.

This “cake” was served at a rock climbing campground where we didn’t want to create a lot of trash from plastic forks or paper plates. It was so simple to just have everyone take a cupcake and a napkin.

  1. Where did you find the climbers for this cake?? I have been looking everywhere and have not found any. I’m doing a groom’s cake in July and desperately want to find some like this. Please advise. Thanks!

  2. They were selling them at a Christmas store and I bought 2 but in the 2 years since then, they haven’t carried them. Can’t find them anywhere online! Would love to get another. Anyone know where I can get them?
