This is a cake I did for a cake contest at the local library. It had to have a literary theme so I choose the Hobbit.

This is my first present cake. It was easier than I thought it would be in constructing it, but the fondant loops must dry over night before you can put it together. I used chocolate buttercream over a chocolate cake. I used different sized cutters to make the circles.
This is the mushroom house that I made with the giant cupcake pan. It was a lemon cake filled with a thin layer lemon curd and lemon cream. I used the meringue based buttercream which proved to be difficult to smooth over the curve to the of mushroom cap but with a little patience it turned out quite well.
