Christmas cakes are my favourite type of cake to decorate, it’s how Em and I first got into cake decorating when we were little. We always used to choose a design and have a go at making it. It always makes me feel Christmassy! This year I decided to make a big cake, as you can never have enough fruit cake. Click here to find out more about my Christmas bird house cake.
