This cake was a red velvet cake using the smallest spring form pans by Wilton, and then carved some to form it’s shape. Every two layers I placed a divider so that I could place cut skewers in between as supports, then ran a full skewer all the way through all layers and cardboard circles to keep it stable. I made the lid and handle out of gum paste and then painted it with silver sheen food coloring. The plate, pickle, pretzels, brat, and German bread were all made from gum paste and then chalked with petal dust the colors. The mustard was royal icing, along with the tree and trunk on the stein. The bottom cake was covered in fondant to look like a checkered table cloth. The foam on the cake was quite by accident. I had used a cooked flour icing and it kept sliding down the sides. Everyone thought I had done it on purpose. It ended up just adding to the whole composition!

That is so cool, Tracy! My grandson used to be all wrapped up with Warcraft, but it had become so addictive to him, his Mom literally had to cut the computer cord! He was only 13 or 14 then.
