Tis the season!

This cake is a repeat of a couple of years ago when we made our 1st "Santa's stuck" cake.  Mel and her hubby were attending a company's 1st annual Christmas party this past Saturday and this was Mel's contribution to the desserts. Since kids were also attending we thought "Santa's Stuck" would be a big hit.

The cake is a 9" chocolate Guinness cake with alternating layers of vanilla mousse and chocolate ganache. The brick work is created by textured choc fondant cut into brick sizes and filled in with butter cream for the mortar. The top part of the chimney is created by putting 2 cupcakes together. Vanilla fondant is used for the snow caps and a little white sprinkles resembling snow was added for shimmer.  The company logo done is by an edible printer. Santa's legs & boots are made from fondant.

I heard from a reliable source that the cake was a great success and they are looking forward to the next cake we will create for their next function.
