Laras House Cake by ginas-cakes Laras House Cake by ginas-cakes
Well.......despite all the cakes I've done, I've never made a fuss of our own Christmas cake, so this is it!
It's a full fruit cake with marzipan and fondant decoration.
Due to all our love of the Tombraider games, I decided to do Lara's home this time from TR2. I was originally looking for a normal house design to make into a gingerbread house cake, but couldn't find one I liked.
The cake is an 11" square cut in half and stacked. To give you an idea of the size, the christmas tree is 6cm.
The stages of the cake and other Lara inspired cakes....

That's it for this year.......Merry Christmas to you all!




If you would like to use this image for anything at all,
would you please let me know before you do so.....Thankyou..

I couldn't find an exact picture of Lara's house, so I found someone who had made a sims version that was really helpful
to get all the detail :)

Man. This brings back awesome memories. Can actually kind of picture the jumping/climbing training course to the left. A lot of your cakes are gorgeous and inspiring, buut.... this one is nostalgically delicious. XD

...thanks for the watch and faves by the way! :aww:

Hehe. I think I remember when my mom gave me the first one when it was sorta new on Easter (I was 11..). At first most would think, "Oh boy. This is no game for kids," but.. haha. When playing... I think my friends and I got caught up in the story of a pretty tough chick with one heck of a witty attitude, and the puzzles in the game made it fun. (Whether we did it right or failed. Hah.) Super awesome series of games all the way through.

And no doubt. As if I could resist watching! :heart: Your works are pretty, AND pretty inspiring. ^_^ (Oh.. and they look delicious; but too pretty to eat sometimes. @_@ Quite a dilemma. Haha.)

The puzzles in the game are brilliant, and I think I miss them the most in the new ones...well that and exploring Laras house :)
My daughters just bought the new game for me, so I'm looking forward to seeing what it's like as it's been delayed for ages.

...and thankyou ^_^
I'm starting one of my daughters cakes over the weekend for her Birthday Thursday. I love making her cakes because she likes pretty and very girlie ones...:aww:

Is the snow fondant too?

The snow is royal icing. I was able to spread it about a bit with a brush and hot water.
With edible glitter sprinkled on, it looked icey...
