Garden Cake with Animated Bake Oven


Birthday cake for someone who has a huge garden and chickens,
and builds outdoor masonry ovens. The fence is of cinnamon sticks, the party flags are of edible icing sheets, and apart from the oven framing, flag poles, banner, and cookie crumble "dirt", everything else you see is made of icing from the rooftop to the chickens. The chimney "smoked" with a miniature humidifier and the embers glowed and "crackled" by use of battery-operated leds and velum paper. The cake was German chocolate. Half was filled with a coconut and pecan frosting, and the other half was cherry-filled.
