crisped rice treats
rolled fondant
red colouring
black colouring
green colouring
pink colouring
purple colouring
yellow colouring
blue colouring
brown colouring
buttercream icing
piping gel
pearl lustre
cobblestone texture sheet

Cake Instructions:Place baked and cooled 14” cake on cake board. Cut away approximately 1/3 of one side to create a steep cliff for the cake. Ice sides of cake with gray buttercream allowing lots of extra build up on cliff side to create texture. Cover top of cake with green fondant. Tint piping gel blue and cover exposed cake board. Use a small spatula to create swirls in piping gel.
Lighthouse and cottage:Shape crisped rice treats into the lighthouse shape, approximately 12” tall. Ice with thin layer of buttercream. Roll white fondant into square large enough to cover lighthouse and impress fondant with cobblestone texture sheet. Wrap fondant around light house. Add supports in cake and place small cardboard circle on cake before placing lighthouse on cake. Form the top of the lighthouse with crisped rice treats and ice in buttercream and wrap in fondant. Use pearl lustre on the yellow fondant that will be the windows in the top of the lighthouse. Add panes to the window by piping black buttercream lines. Cut lines into narrow strips of red fondant to create look of shingles for roof. Start at the bottom edge and work up to the top overlapping the strips. Make the cottage in the same manner as the lighthouse using the brick texture sheet to create the sides of the house. Use the cobblestone texture sheet and dark gray fondant to create pathway. Use green buttercream and pink and purple fondant to add grass and flower details. Hand mold dock and row boat from various shades of brown fondant.
