ICED SNOWFLAKE CHRISTMAS CAKE


It doesn't seem that long ago since I posted last years Christmas cake and yet here we are again............

Baby blue fondant icing covers the main cake and simple white snowflakes adorn the top. A sprinkling of snow white magic sparkles and silver hologram glitter. Wired ribbon to match the snowflakes and silver beads to add some Christmas bling.

I thought I would delve into the archives and put the Christmas cakes from other years alongside this posting for you to see. They are all very simple yet effective.

Christmas Cake December 2008.


Iced Christmas Cake 2007 (my favourite to date). This cake has served me well and this year is the first photograph on the first page of Google Images. Also on the top row of Google Images is the very same cake called 'A Slice of Iced Christmas Cake'.

Wow, these are brilliant Christmas cakes, I am very impressed and envious of your decorating skills, I just don't have the patience I am afraid. I love the blue fondant you have used for this year and the snowflakes looks fab. Can you send me a slice?

They all look stunning Margaret - I wish I had the patience and skill to ice and decorate cakes like that. The best I can run to is a bit of piped buttercream!!!

Hmmm, are you trying to pass off the work of a professional as your own?? These are INCREDIBLE! Must make you so proud to look back at the photos!

All of the cake designs are my own, with the exception of Christmas Bling, which is adapted from a Good Food Magazine recipe. I have credited them with this when I originally published this posting in 2006.

Hi Margaret - just wanted to clarify that I in no way meant to suggest you had copied anything else - really just that your cakes looked so amazing and professional I'd expect to see them in any good food magazine. Perhaps take it as jealousy coming through ...

Sorry if I've offended or given anyone the impression that this is not all your own work. Having followed your post for a while, I am completely aware of your talents!

Hope you enjoy your Christmas.

Best wishes
Alexis

Wow - you are certainly the master of christmas cakes! All are stunning but I think my favourite is the one with the little gold trees running around the edge.

Love this year's almost Wedgwood colour scheme!

Fab looking cakes, oh how I wish I liked xmas cake. I miss out this time of year because I don't eat the cake, pud or mince pies. However, what I do like to do is to scrape out the mincemeat from the pastry and fill with jam LOL.

Hi Alexis

Thank you for your kind comments and for taking the time to come back and clarify. It is very much appreciated.

Wow those cakes are stunning. I wish I had the patience to decorate like that.

Great cakes Margaret. I'm feeling rather uninspired about mine. Need to do it this weekend.

SarahKate said...

Wow! They are all gorgeous, but I think I like the one for this year best... the blue is just so good! Impressive!
