I saw a cake like this here on CC and absolutely loved it, and had to try it out for myself. (I can't remember who to give credit to) This is a butter, vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. The mantel is rice krispies covered in modeling chocolate. The hearth is also rice krispies covered in buttercream. I air brushed it with Wiltons cans of air brush in red and black. All the stockings and decorations were made of MM fondant. This was a gift for my son and his roomates.
