This design works perfectly with any cake recipe that has a buttercream or cream cheese frosting. To create more of a nighttime Christmas scene, you can also use dark chocolate ganache. You can design this cake as a single-, double- or triple-tiered sprawling town – depending on how many people you need to feed! As usual, all the decorations can be vegan.
