One Cake to Rule Them All...

For my son's thirteenth birthday tomorrow, I made a Hobbit Hole cake.  Cake is from a mix, baked in Pampered Chef batter bowl.  I cut a small chunk from one side to make the door, the leftover made the little hill under the right hand tree.  Fortunately, it's the right season for Christmas tree peeps.  Path is yogurt-covered raisins, windows are chocolate coated raspberry rings.

Update:  Another year, another Hobbit birthday party.  This year I adapted this cake and added some chocolate gold coins to create Smaug in his lair. I think if I was doing it again I would use red gummis for the claws and eye ridges, but everyone enjoyed.
