Decorate Birthday Cakes Yourself!
My family is full of Sci-Fi nerds and my sons especially love The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit. I was originally going to do a regular Lego block cake but at the last minute decided to up the ante. Why not, I had a few hours to burn!
I checked online and of course, just when I'm thinking I'm all creative and original...someone else(actually a lot) already thought of this! It seemed they all had a different idea on how to go about making this cake so I just went to the store in search of anything that looked like it would work. Turns out I had pretty good luck because it came out pretty close to my vision.
I used two cake mixes. I poured one into a 13x9 cake pan and the other I poured half into a round cake pan and the rest I put into cupcakes. To form the house I leveled off the top of the 13x9 and flipped upside down onto the serving platter. I cut the round in half and leveled off only the bottom layer, flipped over, and stacked halves on top of each other. The top layer should have the rounded top.
You can pretty much see from the pictures what I used to construct the rest of the house.
Here is a list of my supplies:
Chocolate frosting(to glue the goodies on the front of house)
Flower Shaped Sprinkles
|Chocolate Marshmallow Boulders|
|Grape Stem Tree|
Look at that face...it's all worth it!
"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole and that meant comfort."
- J. R. R. Tolkien
