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!
It is so festive!!! You did an awesome job....I need to get with the Christmas spirit and start making festive cookies and cakes.
Thanks for the inspiration!!!

How'd you make the peppermint icing?
It's lovely and the peppermint and chocolate sounds yummy!
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 won...lol
Gatorfan01, the icing is just a plain BC recipe but instead of vanilla or almond flavoring I used peppermint extract....sooo delicious!!
