Currently I'm working on a housewarming cake for a dear friend who has bought her first house.I will be doing this cake for free but want it to look good.

I'm planning to carve a Chocolate cake into a house & then add some plants, mail box, car & a tiny pond with a BBQ in the backyard.I am done with making these toppers (Except for the main house cake)

Just hoping my house stays up & doesn't collapse.Might have to support it with dowels.Any suggestions?

Does any1 have a good Chocolate cake recipe to share?

Also any ideas on making a house cake wud help. I do not intend to use a house cake pan for it, which is why I'm concerned about it .

How tall will it be? If it'll be taller than 4 inches, board and dowel half way up. Otherwise, it shouldn't have issues standing up. By the way, your cake sounds absolutely adorable!

My mind is always bursting with ideas, the actual problem starts when the ideas need to materialize into a cake
