School house cake
One thing I had to look up was ideas on how to create the shape. I went for 6 loaves, using the top 2 as the roof. Just cut from the middle of one width to the corner and that bit you cut off will fit perfectly on top.
Also - trim all your loaves so that they are nice and straight.
With these at 1,5cm wide, I had a 10cm high wall and so I made 10 pieces (so that I had enough to overlap). I had a couple extra - which is better than being short. :-)
Use butter icing to "glue" your cake pieces together.
Right: Roof pieces cut a bit wider - 2cm each. I then used my cutter to mark them - giving the look of tiles.
Ruth helped mix some light blue fondant and she cut those to the size I asked (about 2cm square). I then cut the holes out of the walls and inserted the little square of blue. I used an icing pen to draw the details on the windows (and the door - although it was too dark to see).
One happy little boy - ready for school. I had asked Hezekiah what he wanted for his cake this year, and he said "a school because I will be starting school". I think it was a very good idea. :-)
