House shaped cake

Hi, I’ve been asked to make a cake in the shape of a house for a friend who is moving into his first house. I’m going to use 3x square cakes stacked on top each other & carve the roof. What way should I cover it with fondant? With 1 piece over the whole cake or do each side on it’s own. & then the roof.

Also is there anywhere on the net which have some help I tried looking but do not see any thing helpful.

Thank you.
Dan.

Hi ChefDan

See if this helps http://vegspinz.blogspot.co.uk/2011/01/house-of-cake.html it’s probably a little more rudimentary than what you’re looking for but it gives a bit of an idea. I would be inclined to cover the rectangular part all in one and then do the roof separately. It may be wise to stack each cake on it’s own board and use dowels to stop the layers collapsing and a couple of dowels to hold the roof secure. Any of the tiered cake tutorials are good reference for stacking and dowelling, the baby reindeer cake tutorial is useful as it show how to cover and dowel a separate element onto a main. Hope this all makes sense.
