Recipe: Santa's House (15 pics)

Ingredients

500 g of butter
500 g flour
600 g of sugar
9 eggs
75 g of cocoa
1 package ½ yeast
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Ingredients for the decor

500 g of butter
300 g icing sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
A package of chat languages
A packet of wafers
A pack of chocolate sticks
Colorful candies, little marshmallows, penguins, Christmas decorations

Step 1

Melt the butter over low heat.

2nd step

In a bowl, beat the sugar with the melted butter. Then pour the flour and the yeast to obtain a homogeneous paste.

Step 3

Break the eggs by separating the whites from the yolks, add the yolks to the dough and mix. In another bowl, whip the egg whites.

Step 4

Add the whites gently to your dough.

Step 5

Separate the dough in half. In a salad bowl, add the cocoa by mixing well. In the other, add the vanilla extract.

Step 6

Butter and flour a square mold. Serve both pasta and cook for 30 to 40 minutes depending on your oven. Repeat the same for the other two cakes. Let them cool before decorating.

Step 7

Prepare the frosting: beat the soft butter and icing sugar. Then pour 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and mix again.

Step 8

Spread the icing with a spatula or a round knife on the first cake from the center.

Step 9

Do the same for the second. Place the second cake over the first and apply the frosting on the slices.

Step 10

Glue the wafers all around the cakes by covering the bottom well.

Step 11

Cut the last cake in half diagonally and remove the corners.

Step 12

Put these two cakes one behind the other to form the roof of the house. Use the frosting to hold them together. Then cover them with frosting to decorate them. Drop the cat's tongues by overlapping them on top of the cakes from the bottom of the roof. Continue decorating the house with the cakes and candies using the frosting as glue.

Step 13

Install the figurines according to your taste. Sprinkle with icing sugar if you wish at the last moment.
