Merry Christmas…Cake!

Merry Christmas…with the view of our cake – only got round to tasting it today after stuffing ourselves yesterday!

It’s a snowy scene (not completely unlike a couple of weeks ago) – the cabin is a bought cake decoration, but the cake, icing and trees are hand-made – the trees are an adaptation of ones featured in the Sainsbury’s Food Magazine – Mint matchmakers as trunks and coloured white Belgian chocolate piped to form the body of the tree – the ones in the article seemed rather 2D…so I made these a bit more 3D by building up layers of chocolate to bulk out the body –  edible ‘baubles’ were added to make them more festive – they look good and taste great too!
