p1240155This year I have been slightly more organised than last year and managed to make and decorate my Christmas cake on time! I wanted to try something different and designed a cake with quilled snowflakes. We learned how to quill icing on our Squires cake course last year, a technique I had never done before. It’s quite therapeutic and fun to create different shapes and fit them all together. Click  here to see my snowflake designs.

Earlier in the year I made an Easter cake and Halloween cake for charity raffles in the office. I decided that I would offer to make a Christmas cake. I had no idea how I was going to decorate, but for some reason I decided that when I got home after my Christmas party it was a good time to start decorating it! After a quick search on Pinterest I found a cake that looked quite quick to make so I based it on that.

IMG_2728Yesterday I spent all afternoon in the kitchen, decorating the Christmas cake, whilst listening to Christmas tunes. This has been a tradition, since as long as I can remember. Several months before Christmas, Becky and I usually discuss what design we’re each going to do that year. This year for me it was easy – I’d found two designs last year and only had time to do one, the penguin bowling cake. I’m glad I didn’t try to fit this one in last year since it literally took all afternoon to decorate. Click here if you want some elves to wrap your Christmas cake up for you!
