I have been waiting patiently for two things: to make a mermaid cake and to make a wood cake. Well, still no mermaid, but FINALLY I was asked to make a wood cake! For the lumberjack cake I went with a fondant tree stump. I simply used bunched up tin foil for texture after placing the pieces and hand painted the details. The plaid upper tier is hand painted. Now, I NEED to make more of these!! All different types of wood; aged, planks, birch, etc. Bring on the wood cake oders!
