"Hey, can you whip up this cake a week before Christmas?" Sometimes, my customers make me laugh right out loud. The cake (both the base and the mole hill - not quite a mountain) are chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream. I used good old plain coloured vanilla buttercream to cover the cake as well. The waterfall has a blue icing background and is covered in coloured piping gel (I'm still not sure if I should have used a lighter colour for that). The rocks are actually chocolate and can be purchased from your local bulk foods store (great for gingerbread houses!). The trees are not edible, but my time was a little limited this week.
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
