red snowflake christmas cake

The cake is ready! A few weeks of feeding with brandy and slowly maturing and it’s time to ice. I was dreaming of a bright red reindeer, like this one, what a beauty!

But Big Sis Cakes had bought me a set of snowflake icing cutters for my birthday. Snowflakes it is then. Doesn’t it look good? Tastes alright too. You can find the recipe in my recent post, Feed Me!

Big sis Cakes and I learnt how to decorate cupcakes today, thanks to the lovely Gill at The Cupcake Workshop. But first things first. A lovely cup of tea of course.

Then down to business. First we learnt to make butterflies, daisies, roses and bows using sugar paste.
