I started making fondant figures about a month ago and decided I wanted to make a Christmas cake for my family. I was so nervous about how it was going to turn out (but knew my family would be forgiving). Here's the result. I know I still have lots of work to do to make my figures look any close to the beautiful figures I see on CC. I would love any comments or tips you have for me.

The cake was chocolate and filled with peppermint buttercream and crushed candy canes. The outside fondant was covered in silver sanding sugar and royal icing snowflakes.

thats lovely!! so much work went into it, i can tell!! your figures are lovely, i would just make the eyes smaller next time, i always think small ones are more forgiving and look more alert but you did a lovely job, and it sounded yummy!
