You know, some might think of this as a tent....but it truly is supposed to represent a box--a present. I may have missed the mark here just a bit. But the kids seemed excited about it. The "box" is a three layer (white, yellow, chocolate) cake covered in fondant and carefully cut out to make room for the cake board supports and a lid. The lid is so totally non edible as are the satin ribbons. But the White 50/50 fondant bow is certainly edible if you'd like to sacrifice a tooth or two :) Bottom support cake is a 2 layer half sheet white cake with buttercream icing and mini candy cane "hearts".
Don't you just love the little lighted Nativity.
When I saw it I KNEW where it was going.
Did you know...
Nativities were really hard to find this year.
Thank goodness for Christian based Hobby Lobby's!
And stores like them!!!!
Somehow, though, what was in my head didn't quite make it to the cake board.
But I count those kind of experiences as learning ones.
just cake :)
Now this was something I'd label
our students praising the reason for the season..Jesus Christ!
Merry Christmas in January!!!!!
