Christmas in Frostington is a sweet collaboration of over 150 artists from all over the world who have come together to raise money this holiday season to benefit three charities: the Alzheimer’s Society in the UK, Icing Smiles in the USA and the Australian Melanoma Research Foundation.
Spearheaded by Samantha Emmerson of Cupcaketopia, the images of each individual contribution were arranged in one final digital representation, creating the beautiful fictitious British village so aptly named: Frostington!
Take a stroll around this sugary village who’s scene is set on Christmas Eve, highlighting the town’s inhabitants and their various holiday activities, from last-minute shopping to ice skating to Santa himself flying over Frostington!

The structural cake was assembled and decorated with impeccably modeled fondant figures, representing both the carousel’s animals, as well as the people. The details of this piece are simply out of this world!

In another ice rink in the village, you can spot this precious little ice skater created by Nina Evans Williams of Môn Cottage Cupcakes. As opposed to the previous skater, this splendid figure was delicately hand-painted onto fondant, capturing the same sense of cheer and sweetness with the use of a different medium.

Snowmen are an essential part of any Winter scene and Jean A. Schapowal of Cakes with Character added the perfect friendly snowman with this gorgeous cake! Taking the quintessential snow figure, Jean transformed him to fit the town of Frostington by decorating him with old Victorian accessories, such as his top hat, scarf and beautiful hand-painted robe.

Kitchen inside Mansion House
Nina Blackburn of Make Pretty Cakes was in charge of making the mansion’s kitchen, which she so cleverly created with a little girl catching Santa taking something from the refrigerator! The fridge itself is a covered cake embellished with a printed edible image, while the characters in the project were superbly molded with the use of modeling chocolate and hand-painted features.

Flying Santa, sleight and reindeer
How can a Christmas scene be complete without Santa Claus? Laura Miller of Sweet as Sugar Cake added magic to the collaboration with this mind-blowing gravity-defying cake of Santa in his sleigh being pulled by his reindeer. The figure-modeling, texture and details of this piece are simply exquisite, not to mention the unbelievable structure to allow the reindeer to fly!
