My niece wanted a hobbit themed cake. She was asking for one way before it was time for her birthday. So, what is an Aunt to do but make her niece what she is asking for.
The hobbit house is chocolate cake dirty iced in chocolate buttercream. I then covered it in marshmallow fondant. I made rocks and a path out of gray fondant, and piped in buttercream grass using the Wilton grass tip.
Bilbo is made of a wire frame covered in fondant.
Gandalf is made of a wire frame and covered in fondant as well. His staff was a kebob stick cut down and covered in fondant.
