So I did this cake yesterday for a contest at work today. It's a chocolate cake with peppermint icing. I got inspired by thanh thanh's beautiful work. I know it's not as awesome as hers but I'm really happy with it. It took so long to pipe and do brush embroidery. But it was relaxing for me.

I sprinkled the whole cake with cake sparkles before doing the detail work so it could look snowy. And once my BC crusted i brushed on shimmer dust to the berries and the border.

Anyway, I hope you like it! Any comments and criticism welcome! icon_biggrin.gif

So thanks for all the nice comments everyone!! They said they couldn't decide on a winner so I got top 3....but everyone tells me I should have

Gatorfan01, the icing is just a plain BC recipe but instead of vanilla or almond flavoring I used peppermint extract....sooo delicious!!
