It's a bit after christmas, plus this cake has all been eaten now. However I just wanted to share with you the baking and decorating of our snowflake christmas. I was very pleased with the final effect of the cake. I also rolled out the marzipan and foundant very thinly as Hubby it not a big fan of either. It is a very tasty & moist cake, I used Nigella's christmas cake recipe from the Domestic Goddess for the small christmas cake. I baked the cake back at the end of October so it would mature and I could feed it small wee drams of Spainish Brandy every week. I enjoyed every slice, christmas cake is one of my favorites.
|Jewel like dried friut socked in brandy over night|
|Creamed butter, sugar and egg|
|Flower and mixed all spices|
|What a sticky mixture|
|Vintage cake tin lined and ready to go|
|Hot out if the oven|
|Getting wrapped in lots of foil for a few months|
|December time to decorate|
|Fondant snow flake cutter|
|Finished decorated Cake|
|Some plain, some covered in sparkly sugar|
Again I most say I love christmas cake, can't wait until next year.
