Christmas cake

I love Christmas cake! I have very fond memories as a child of helping my Nana bake Christmas cakes.  I loved the way she used to decorate them too.. with little plastic snowmen and Santa's and gold coloured 'Merry Christmas' signs, it was 1980's Christmas kitsch and I loved it.  These cakes were inspired by the ones my Nana used to make but with a modern twist.  Novelty cakes nowadays are often crafted with fondant and sugarpaste elements and this is the look I wanted to recreate with my Christmas cakes.   On each cake there is a mini snowman with a carrot nose, coal eyes and buttons, a top hat and blue scarf; two Christmas trees with multi-coloured baubles; an iced gingerbread man and festive candy cane.  These cakes are currently available to buy in my Etsy shop here.
