Christmas Cake Ideas

Hope everyone is having a great time preparing for Christmas! It's a lot of work isn't it??!!

My kids' school had their annual Christmas Craft and Bake Sale last week. The kids love it - each class make crafts to sell, families donate their gently used toys to resell, lots of sweet treats are made for the bake sale and there is an annual "cake walk". Families make a special cake and the kids do a kinda musical chairs thing to determine who wins a cake. This year I made 8 cake creations for the "walk". I thought I'd show some of them here just in case any of you are looking for ideas.
Two layer cake frosted with vanilla butter cream. After frosted we simply added a
gingerbread house we found at the dollar store and a few decorations from the local cake supply store. Super cute.

Same as above. A few different decorations.

Double layer cake that has been frosted. Ten (yes 10) kit kat bars surround the cake.
Threw a bunch of  Smarties on top with a Lindt Santa in the middle.

Same with a different toy on top!

This one is my fave even though the Santa needs work! lol. Frosted single layer cake with fondant for the blanket and figurines.
