Gingerbread houses and christmas robins are amongst the edible treasures you’ll find in the magical village of Frostington this Christmas – a fairytale village that magically exists in over 150 different pieces all over the world…..How can this be?

Over 150 sugar artists from around the globe joined forces to bake and decorate this mythical village, each creating a single piece in their kitchens and studios and finally all brought together in a single montage by the digital mastery of the Frostington Collaboration team to unveil “Christmas in Frostington”.

This feat of cake artistry has been worked on by cake elves the world over to raise money for three outstanding charities: the Alzeihmers Society in the UK, Icing Smiles in the US and the Australian Melanoma Research Foundation.

Frostington Village

You can do your part to unite with the cake artists and team behind the special village of Frostington by purchasing the any of the amazing collection of tutorials the cake artists have put together, the full proceeds of which will be divided amongst the three charities. The tutorials are available to purchase through Frostington’s village website: Christmas in Frostington.

You can view all the individual pieces of the Frostington collaboration from each cake artist here: the village of Frostington.

We leave you with a close-up with just two of the 150+ amazing pieces that went into the making of Frostington – by Mitchie’s Munchies (left) and Rebekah Manston of Ladies That Cake (right).
