Woodlands Cake
A woodlands Cake that is actually extremely easy to make, a bit messy at times, but the final outcome is a stunning cake that looks like a real wood log. This cake was made for our Grandson’s 2nd Birthday and was inspired by this amazing cake by Elizabeth at Sugarhero.com. Feel free to use any cake and frosting recipes that are your favorite to create this Woodlands Cake. I used the following: The bottom log cake is 1-1/2 recipes of Texas Sheet Cake baked in 3-8 inch pans and frosted with Swiss Meringue Buttercream with melted chocolate folded in. The top cake is a 6-inch Naked White Cake frosted with Perfect Ermine Buttercream. I added some “moss” made from crushed graham crackers and frosted mini wheat cereal tinted with green food coloring. A few sprigs of freshly cut rosemary and some left-over chocolate shards complete the decorations.
