Luckily since I have started blogging I have been inspired by the skills and expertise of fellow bloggers, such as Karen (at Lavender and Lovage) and her delightful mini Christmas cakes, here.
Taking inspiriation from her snowflakes I decided that I would use a snowflake theme on my cake, but wanted to do something which was not too complex!
|The finished cake|
|I used bought marzipan and icing|
|Don't forget to use plenty of icing sugar when you roll|
our fondant icing, or you will find it very difficult to use
|I covered the cake with warm apricot jam|
(which I had strained) and then applied the marzipan
To ensure the icing stuck, I covered the marzipan
with boiled and cooled water
|I rolled out the icing and covered the cake|
|I smoothed the icing and made sure the cake was|
Once I had put some cellophane and ribbon on the cake, it didn't look too bad, and I was quite proud to see it sitting on the raffle prize table at the fair.
I do hope that whoever won the cake, was pleased with their prize!
