Bertie Heating and Air Holiday House Cake

This week, we got to make a fun cake for Bertie Heating & Air's holiday party. They wanted a cake in the shape of a house decorated for Christmas! But they also wanted it to resemble their company logo:


No problemo!

The cake itself was 2 stories high, meaning it was equivalent to 2 tiers of cake...or about 10-12 inches tall. The chimney was made of Rice Krispies Treats, and the bricks were individually cut and set in place.

I made the front porch awning out of Rice Krispies Treats and hand-cut the letters for Bertie logo.

Of course, we had to include an air conditioning unit!

And the Christmas lights. They were SO tiny! I had to take a picture with my pinky finger next to one so you could get an idea of how small they were. They were individually glued in place with royal icing!

But it was all so worth it when the customer picked up the cake. She said she'd dreamed of the cake the night before and had goosebumps when she saw it.

This kind of reaction is what we cake decorators live for!
