A friend called today to ask if I would make her sister a 3D house cake. She has d.s. and finally was accepted into a home after 3 years of trying. Of course I just knew I could do this but the more I have thought about it now I am beginning to wonder. I don't have a special pan but I thought maybe someone here could help. I don't want to let them down. The cake only needs to feed 15 people. Anyone willing to give me a boost???

Of course you can do it.

I think I would bake 3 8x8 squares. On the top one, cut it at an angle so that it has a slanted roof. Use a dense cake so it will carve well. Crumb coat it all, measure the sides and cut pieces of fondant for them. Add windows and door. (maybe a yellow square for a window, then cut a black square the same size, cut out 4 smaller squares to be the window panes, then stick the black square over the yellow one. Add shutters if you want to. Do the roof last, then put the cake on a cake board covered with green fondant. Cut out a path going to the front door and put some green bumps to be plants, with little cutout flowers on them.

Or you could do it laying down too--like home plate in baseball.
