Lighthouse and Cottage Cake
This cake was done for a surprise 80th birthday; the recipient is a lighthouse lover. The cake is a 1/2 sheet cake carved to give the feel of a lighthouse landscape. The cake is frosted in a standard crusting BC. The lighthouse and cottage were molded from homemade rice cereal treats. They were then frosted and covered in a cobblestone-printed fondant; all additional decorations were also fondant. To finish off the cake after assembly, I created some grass patches and placed tiny gumpaste flowers and fondant rocks.
