Here is 2 of the 3 December throwdowns. 2 more amazing cakes by 2 amazing decorators.....
Christmas Holly and Poinsettia's - 10",8", and 6" with buttercream icing. Royal icing 'scrolls' around bottom. Poinsettias are a combination of fondant and gumpaste. The disintegrated globe at the top is royal icing formed onto a balloon. The center tier has brush embroidery holly with fondant berries. Around the bottom is fondant holly with fondant berries.
Christmas Ornaments - All of the cakes are pound cakes, with chocolate butter cream filling. All are decorated in fondant. The large cake is carved, the medium cake is a sports ball pan, and the small cake is a mini ball pan. All the small ordainments are all fondant and there are sugar crystals on the big cakes, also some gold pearl dust painted on a few. The coconut was used for snow. I had a great time making this cake for my first competition. HAPPPY HOLIDAYS TO EVERYONE!

OOPS - Sorry about that! The poll is correct tho. B1 is the Holly and Poinsettia's................B2 is the Christmas Ornaments
Both of you did a GREAT job!!! I love the scrolls on the pointsettia cake.
How on earth did you get the round ornaments to stay topsy-turvy?

All4cake, I just want to say you cake was beautiful! Thank you everyone for your votes, this was my first throwdown and it was very exciting and challenging. I'm looking forward to doing many more. The assembly of my cakes was pretty much the same way I assemble all my double and triple tiers..........dowels. I made sure they were in secure and postioned so the cakes were not wobbly. I had so much fun making this cake. Hope everyones holiday was wonderful.
