Narnia Lamp Post Cake Tutorial

Skill level: Intermediate

This tutorial was inspired by one of my most beloved winter-time movies, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe! I was so inspired by the magical lamp post that Lucy sees after she falls through the wardrobe and enters Narnia for the first time! She looks up at the warmly glowing lamp and realizes she’s not just in any forrest… then she meets Mr. Tumnus!

In this tutorial, I will teach you how to build the cake structure, how to use a template to create your isomalt pieces and how to assemble them into a lamp. I’ll even show you how to make a flickering flame from isomalt, snowflakes and a pretty crackled fondant texture!
