Santa's Helpers Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had just finished my third Wilton cake class, and I was a little scared that I would not be able to pull this cake off, but after each cake class I felt more confident that I can do anycake I wanted to do! The Elves were not as hard to make as I thought they might be. Even got my husband to help with making the Elves. We had a lot of fun making this cake together. It was a big hit at the Christmas dinner. I gave this a somewhat difficult only due to the Elves...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Here is a funny one for you. I have two granchildren ages 7 + 5, every year their mom tells them the little elf figurine I gave her as a child is watching them and reporting back to santa on if they are good. She says the elf reminds them to be good. I saw this cake and couldn't resist. I decided since she was using an elf theme every year I would make this cake. I made the elves using the packaged gumtext. I seperated it, then colored it using ivory color, green color and black. I saved some for the white. Using a toothpick I made perfect little smiles. I baked my cake, it was three layers, the cake was chocolate and I used chocolate bavarian cream and fresh strawberries for a filling. I used a larger cake pay a 9x11 inch. I used the cardboard, three peices taped together, I covered this with green colored tissue paper, then clear plastic. A small dab of classic chocolate buttercream icing was put on the bottom to hold the cakes, each layer was frosted and filled then I rolled out my fondant and covered the cake. This I smoothed down with a small flat little iron looking tool. I then cut the fondant for the ribbon using a ruler to my measurements needed. I drew on the design using the edible cookies markers. I place my elves randomly on the cake. It looked really festive, and cute. I took the cake to my daughters house for the holiday. My granchildren loved it expect they were affraid to eat the elves on the cake, saying that they did not want to make their elf mad, so he would report back to Santa they ate his friends.
