Ace of Cakes, Homestyle Edition

Triss wanted another Redwall party for her birthday this year. We decided to build the Abbey out of cake.

This web page was helpful, and Krakovianka's daughter's cake was an inspiration as well. (We had to have those malted milk balls!)

So, without further ado, here are the construction photos!

Beginning

Triss baked two casserole-size cakes the night before, and after they sat overnight we cut and pasted (with frosting) the different levels together.

Middle

The sugar-cone turrets are my favorite part.

Middle of the Middle

The basic frosting and adding of candy done, and all that's left are the towers and turrets.

Building Complete!

The extremely chocolatey, triumphant result!

Redwall Abbey

The towers-and-turrets took over an hour. Totally worth it.
