My son loves the Magic Treehouse books, so it was a no brainer what birthday cake to make for him. The tree trunk is a vase covered in fondant, a quarter sheet cake on top of that, with RKT around it to give it a tree shape. Leaves are fondant using a plunger cutter, picture is non-edible copy, rungs on the rope ladder are fondant, threaded through twine. Thanks for looking!
