I love this cake it seams difficult but that is the fun part is really cute , and fondant or gum paste it makes it easier for the characters. if you don't have the round pan you can use a round bowl from home and bake two half and then put them together with a couple of wood sticks . For the scarf it is easier to use icing colored in red and also for the hair of the little people since they are so small is difficult to put it with fondant. also using icing for the snow in the floor . but it seams difficult but it is really fun and working with fondant is like playing with play dough. i hope people doesn't feel intimidated by how it looks and think that is difficult. have fuuunn fun fun !!!!.

Love, love, LOVE this cake idea! The piped kids are a little challenging, but well worth the trouble. My next attempt will be with fondant or molding chocolate for the figures. Everything else is very simple and fun to do! I used the stand up bear pan, which was simple enough. This cake is so cute!
