Some of my favorite memories of being a kid during Christmas was to sit by the Christmas tree and to look up at the twinkling lights. Me and my siblings would sit there endlessly dreaming about what was under the tree. Nothing sends the warm, cozy feeling of yuletide quite like a crackling fire by the tree.
I started off this Christmas cake by covering the cake board with brown fondant for a wood floor. I stacked and carved the fireplace, tree, and chair out of chocolate cake and chocolate buttercream. Then it was all covered in fondant with a few extra details. This cake was so much fun to make. I loved how the holiday scene was slowly created from beginning to end.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas with many warm and cozy nights by the tree!
