Christmas Cake by Kelzky Christmas Cake by Kelzky
This was the cake that I decorated on my course :aww: (I didn't bake this one)

This is also covered using the smooth regal icing. I made the snowman and trees out of sugarpaste and the gloopy looking snow was royal icing covered in edible glitter :la:

The letters were a pain in the cahoony to cut out using a set of swirly alphabet cutters - so. many. broken. letters. *twitch*

I was pleased with how it turned out - the lil fishy was my other halve's idea :aww: I learned so much from my course it was well worth doing!!

If it was possible, I'd get this and display it every Christmas and NEVER EVER eat it. (Nah, who am I kidding :drool: )
If you make cake for your friends at their birthdays and such, they really must love you. It's just - so - delicious! And it looks so perfect! :woohoo:

It would last quite a while as its fruit cake - well I guess it wouldn't last that long as I'm sure someone would end up eating it!
Haha thank you! I make cakes for events where LOTS of people get to enjoy them :)

Wow! You have some skills! I love how this cake turned out. I love winter and glitter and if you can eat both that's just awesome! haha.

You're so talented at this! <3 It may be hard work to get cakes looking this nice, but in the end it's really worth it!

Even though everything is white, it looks wonderful! Normally when you have everything the same color, it tends to look a bit weird, but you've really done well! :)

:blush: oh you - I could be better! I love decorating so much it doesn't feel like work which is great!

Thank you, I think the extra height of some lumps of snow helped plus the pond and the snowmans scarf just draw the eye to the right place :aww:

I really enjoyed your cake it was simple and sweet! But it had a lot of nice details that I didn't notice on the first round like little snowballs along the bottom and patches of foliage on the ground. I loved the icy look of the water it looked very natural and melded well with the rest of the cake. The fish was a really nice touch and that snowman is just adorable.

Thank you for your thoughtful comment :aww: the snowballs were initially an idea to cover up the fact that I'd cut the icing below too close to the cake and it was showing the marzipan through it lol!

The fish was the boyfriends idea - when he said it I thought omg that's be awesome lol

I'm really glad you loved the cake - I can't wait til next Christmas now to make the next one! :giggle:
