Housewarming Cake Idea?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have been asked to do a cake for a housewarming in two weeks.
Does anyone have any ideas for a housewarming cake?

I have seen a sheet cake made to look like the for sale sign with a big sold 'sticker' on it. I though it was a cute idea

Hi! I don't know if this is silly...but I always like to take a green or flowering plant as a housewarming gift! I think plant liven up the place! icon_lol.gif Anyway...you could do a cake like a flower pot and either do sugarpaste leaves (like a fern) or some flowers...would be SO cute! It doesn't have to be elaborate...just sweet! Or...you could do little pots with plants on top of a cake?? Good luck!

I did a flower-pot cake for a friend's housewarming. The flower pot was three 6 inch layes stacked, carved slightly at the bottom and covered in fondant. The top was a thin layer of oreo cookie crumbs. And the flowers were made from no-fail cookies on sticks.

I JUST DID A CAKE THIS WEEK FOR NEW NEIGHBORS. IT'S IN MY GALLERY. IT'S A PIC OF THEIR HOUSE ON A FROSING SHEET.

You could use the wilton stand up house pan. Or a round cake and use the basketweave tip and put flowers on top (icing, fondant whatever) to make it look like a basket of flowers. Going off the plant theme mentioned above as a typical housewarming gift.

I made a house for my sister, they just bought a house.

It doesn't look the best, but it ressembles their house, except it is in better shape.

It is in my photo's if you are interested in looking.

Good luck.

Oooooh, I love all of Doug's ideas! I would love to see one of those IRL! Of course, you could always use the 3D house pan from wilton, and be quite literal!?! Good luck!

I did fondant plaques on a cake. Just make your plaque what ever size you want.. Then I just got some water and little bit of brown color dye and rubbed it on with a napkin onto the plaque (after it dried for a couple of days) to give it a antique look.. and used some royal icing for the border.. And on one I used royal icing for the address and the sold sign. I also used gold dust on the border. The other one I just took there name and address from their invitation and laminated it and attached it to the plaque with a royal icing. it was so easy!!!
I added the grapes because both of the families were doing grapes in their kitchens.

Welcome to CC!

I did this cake last weekend for a housewarming party my boss was having. I'm like sharibearie, I like to give plants as housewarming gifts, so this was really fitting. The lucky bamboo plant is supposed to be a gesture of good luck for your home, so the sentiment is nice as well.
