Here is a fun and easy cake to make for St. Joseph's Feast day!
I "saw" this cake over at Coolest Birthday Cakes and thought it would make a great cake for St. Joseph's day!
To create a cake like this, just make a regular chocolate cake in a 13 x 9 inch pan.
Once it's cooled, cut it in-half longways. Place one part on top of the other -spreading a little chocolate icing in the middle to keep them together.
I used one container of white icing mixed with about 1/2 cup to 1 cup of peanut butter and a few spoonfuls of chocolate icing to create the tan colored icing. (Too much peanut butter will make the icing VERY thick) Then I covered the cake with that icing mixture.
Next, I added strips of chocolate icing to the peanut butter mixed icing. This will create the wood look. Make some straight lines and one or two "U" shaped lines.
I dabbed the short ends with chocolate icing to look more like cut wood.
To create the "saw" I cut shapes from gray and brown paper.
Then I laminated so it would with-stand the moisture from the icing.
This saw is about 1 foot long.
Last but not least, stick the saw into the cake!
If you are skilled at fondant icing I'm sure you could decorate the cake with that and make this cake even cooler!! ;-)
