My dd's school are doing a christmas cake competition. I want to do a cake that is novelty as i can't really pipe or do gumpaste flowers etc. I can make figures and work wholly in fondant. I liked the snoopy on his house christmas cake on here as I feel it would fulfil my desire to be fun for kids but appeal to parents to but in UK few kids know who snoopy is now a days. Any ideas for a cool cake would really help me here!!!!

thats a tough one, i know what you mean with kids not knowing who snoopy is these days .

perhaps have a look through the the xmas gallery , might get some inspiration there.

you could do something simple like a gift box or a big stocking with the top full of toys, im sure most kids could relate to that icon_smile.gif

Thanks Cath I had a look through the gallery before and also the older Holiday cakes competition stuff but still not getting it. I love those Christmas tree cakes and I love the Santa that won the competition, it has a sack so maybe I'll do him...only worry is what will people think about eating santa?!!!! Might put people off!

i love penguins! could do a proper 3d one, standing or lying, or the white snow scene with penguin figures.
or a stocking, or a big present cake!

I think a snowflake cake would be beautiful. One of my favorite christmas specials is the one with the adbomial ( I know I didn't spell that right) snowman and the island of mis fit toys. That one is classic and still shown on tv. I read that you are from across the pond. I am not sure if you know what I am talking about. You could do a small tier cake with huge snowflakes covered in edible glitter the possibilities are endless.
