Easter Cake

Easter Cake By bmote1
This is my take on the Debbie Brown tree stump. I made it into an Easter cake by adding lots of little tiny easter eggs all around the cake. I also put in an easter lamb! I also added a little fairy!

Whether they incorporate fantasy characters, woodland  fairies or lifelike flora and fauna, tree stump cakes are majestic creations. Here are the best of tree stump cakes from the galleries, sure to inspire whimsical cake art.

Tree Stump

Tree Stump By ellepal
We saw this kind of cake on this site done by Franmjc from Australia, and really loved it so much we decided to do it for a party planning expo at our local mall. My husband did most of the work on it, since he happens to have most of the sculping abilities! Anyway, this is his version. This is one that went on the news station this morning!

Another view of Easter cake

Another view of Easter cake By kelly75
Another view (there are so many little details on this cake!) The story to this cake is that Easter Bunny Jnr had pinched the basket of eggs and is hiding on the tree stump, feasting on chocolate (which is all over his face!)

Keep Away

Keep Away By talmas
Here is my sculpted cake entry for the Capital Confectioners’ Cake show in Austin Texas. My creative DH decided to take the pic outside. Puppy, squirrel, bone, and stump are sculpted cake. It is fondant covered and painted with a paintbrush. The board is covered in fondant and I used a star tip to give it texture. I used a veining tool and a toothpick for the stump texture. I used a toothpick to give the animals fur. I know you are going to ask. It took me a week and I missed a lot of sleep.

65th Wedding Anniversary Enchanted Tree cake

65th Wedding Anniversary Enchanted Tree cake By Makeitmemorable
In 1944 this beautiful old couple carved their initials in a tree as a sign of their love – 65 years later they are celebrating their anniversary – I was so thrilled to do this beautiful cake for this customer. I put White roses because roses are her favourite and they are also the 65th Anniversary flower. Their invitation had little red and white birds sitting on branches so I added these to the tree. This was 3 tiers of Chocolate and Caramel mud swirl, covered in chocolate ganache and chocolate fondant. Everything is completely edible. I highlighted the tree in gold luster dust to give it a bit more detail. I thoroughly enjoyed making this cake. Thanks for looking
