Snowflake Christmas Cake


This is a cake I made for myself Christmas 2010, I took inspiration from another beautiful cake I saw online made by 'small things iced' ( ) so all credit to her where its due!

I handpiped all the snowflakes in royal icing then dusted them with luster dust so they shimmered. The cake is a boozy fruitcake covered in marzipan and fondant with hand piped royal icing pearls and snowflakes with luster dust and edible glitter for that extra snowy sparkle! I also made matching cupcakes which were christmas pudding flavoured with a sherry butter cream.

This was actually my first ever fondant covered cake as up until then I had only ever made cupcakes!
