Do you know
how fun and easy it is
to build a cabin Lincoln-log style
out of pretzel rods
cemented with daubs of frosting?
This is what happens when your son insists on a three-dimensional structure fire cake for his ninth birthday.
It would be fun to use in other ways as well—a woodsy/ hunting scene with a plastic deer in the front, and pine trees made of inverted waffle cones with frosting stars…
Or a twist on Christmas gingerbread houses…
Cut rods to desired lengths. Allow house to dry before adding a roof of graham crackers or other material on top.
This is so awesome! Love it! 🙂
what a great idea! loved the candles inside the house to make it actually burn. My almost 3 year old has been begging for a fire truck cake for the last half year. This looks so much easier than doing an actual fire truck cake. Thanks for the idea
“Pretzel rod houses??” And firemen? I don’t know, Shari. You just keep posting on the most controversial subjects.
I know. I can’t help myself, it’s so addicting.
Love it. I’m going to store this one away in my files for future use. We probably wouldn’t do the structural fire thing, but I think it would be a fun twist of a Christmas gingerbread house.
Considering your recent posts, it would make a good log cabin wedding cake topper for the outdoor minded couple.
Carla, this totally cracked me up! And Shari, I love the cake…what a great idea!
