I'm very very new to cake decorating so forgive me if this is a stupid question icon_redface.gif

I am wanting to do a Christmas cake for my grandsons first Christmas similar to this one I would love to be able to add a couple of windows/openings with lights inside the igloo but I'm not sure how to do it or if it is even possible icon_confused.gif I would really appreciate any advice, thankyou.

It is possible, but then you would have to make the igloo hollow and have the underneath part cake.

You can sculpt the igloo out of gumpaste/fondant, cut windows and let dry completly. Add windows out of gelatin sheets on the inside, glue on with a bit of RI

When you place the igloo onto the cake, place a small LED underneath first, you can get them in different colours or when I was in the States this year, I found finger leds or a LED tealight, the latter would give a soft glimmering effect as opposed to the stark LED or blinking LEDs available
