O Christmas tree
5 big sleeps till Christmas! This year's Christmas cake is extra special as it was baked by Upper Cut Cake gal, Jen's mum J to provide some welcome relief from cake baking in the festive/birthday season. However Jen just couldn't resist adding the finishing touches! An exciting year is reflected in a rather more colourful cake than last year's snowy effort. Heaps of presents laid out under a sparkly tinsel strewn tree under a twinkling starry sky.
Merry Christmas everyone!
(Rich fruit cake coated in homemade plum jam sticking a layer of marzipan plus a generous layer of royal icing. Christmas tree, presents, stars and holly all made from fondant icing and finished with piped royal icing detail and just a dash of raspberry sherbert for the tinsel on the tree)
