Materials for Christmas Stocking Cake
For this Christmas Stocking Cake, we used a 9x13 sheet cake (we used our White Almond Sour Cream Cake -Doctored cake mix recipe), frosted with our Fluffy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting recipe.
Stocking Template- You may like to make your own from parchment paper to fit the size cake that you are working with.
Coloring Gel: Wilton Leaf Green, Americolor Super Red, Americolor Warm Brown
Fondant (I kneaded a little tylose into my fondant for the stocking stuffers so that it would firm up more quickly)
Bows- optional- I used a red bow on the bear & a gold bow on the lollipop
Rice Cereal Treats- I used the pre-made 22g size- 1 square for the bear, and 1 for the present
Cake Board- I used a cake board beneath the stocking cake which I trimmed down to size, and then moved the chilled cake to the final cake base (attached with a little frosting)
Cake Base of Choice- Our cake base is three 13x19 sheet cake boards wrapped in a red plastic tablecloth (which is pulled tightly across the top and secured beneath.
