I had a lot of fun yesterday (and Friday) decorating the Christmas cakes. I used the pink whisk for some of the how-to’s, so it is well worth a look if you wanted to create something similar. Lots of you voted for the polar bear, so I decided to go for it even though it looked tricky.
It did take a while (and his ears kept falling off at first) but I am really pleased with how he looks! Too pretty to eat! I had fun with the edible glitter too, but you had to dampen the icing for it to stick and that had not dried when I took the photos.
I also did one with gingerbread men and candy canes.
Although I made the mistake of using the gel icing for the eyes- it is super sticky and does not dry. The holly was tricky as you were meant to have cutters but I didn’t so had to make do with a knife- easier said than done!
I also did some like presents:
In the box from Dunelm Mill ready to be given away.
The boxes are so good, as they come with the boards too. Normally I either give them away in tins that I want back, or have to wrap them carefully in a lot of silver foil and things. I will have to remember that for next year. 🙂
I hope you are all busy getting ready for Christmas too- I have to decide one something for Christmas day as we will be going to Andy’s parents but I will make something for myself that they can heat up in the microwave- am thinking some kind of lentil shepherds pie with sweet potato mash on top? I have seen some lovely nut roast recipes but as I don’t really like all the potatoes etc that go along with it (and it is easier as they cook the potatoes in goose fat so would need to make some separately for me) I need more of a complete meal. Veggies/ vegans- what are you going to be eating this Christmas day? What do you normally do if you eat at someone else’s house?
Oh, and don’t forget to check out my giveaway 🙂
