Currently I'm working on a housewarming cake for a dear friend who has bought her first house.I will be doing this cake for free but want it to look good.

I'm planning to carve a Chocolate cake into a house & then add some plants, mail box, car & a tiny pond with a BBQ in the backyard.I am done with making these toppers (Except for the main house cake)

Just hoping my house stays up & doesn't collapse.Might have to support it with dowels.Any suggestions?

Does any1 have a good Chocolate cake recipe to share?

Also any ideas on making a house cake wud help. I do not intend to use a house cake pan for it, which is why I'm concerned about it .

How tall will it be? If it'll be taller than 4 inches, board and dowel half way up. Otherwise, it shouldn't have issues standing up. By the way, your cake sounds absolutely adorable!

my house cake wud be approx 6" x 3" x 5" not very big, shud I just bake a regular cake & carve it or wud u suggest that I layer it vertically,torte it & then carve it .

My mind is always bursting with ideas, the actual problem starts when the ideas need to materialize into a cake

Hope it turns out as gr8 as I'm expecting it icon_smile.gif
