Mighty Oaks Cake

We think that you will never see a cake as pretty as this tree! It’s an openwork oak, cut from a rectangle of chocolate fondant and placed over a green fondant background for a distinctive color effect. Use the Cut-N-Spin Rotating Cutting Board to easily maneuver around every curve.
