Sugar Cube Igloo

 
Today we finally got around to decorating the Christmas cake.  While I was icing it Matthew asked to find the decorations.  The mistake I made was that I keep the decorations for all occasions in the same box.  Being a boy he found the train so we have ended up with a Polar Express Christmas cake.

 
As normal we had lots of icing left over so we decided to get creative using the icing and sugar cubes to build an igloo.  Matthew decided he was going to use a layer of icing for the foundations of his creation.  Good idea as this stuck it to the plate.

 
It then gradually grew taller using the icing as cement.
 
 
And then Santa decided he was going to move in.
 
 
 
After the roof was finished there was still some icing and sugar cubes left over so he continued building.
 
 
This was so easy to do and kept him occupied for ages.
