Christmas party cake for a local Senior Living Facility. 2 tiered dark chocolate cake with chocolate fudge butter-cream. The inspiration for the cake goes to a photo of a cake I came across on Flickr by Eli Chilev.
The snow is royal icing/fondant/gumpaste. The dead trees are wire frames done by hand and covered with chocolate for a bark look and the frozen pond is tinted isomalt. Everything else is gum-paste and hand made.
Since the cake was for a Senior Living Facility, Santa showed up on his own personal scooter :)
