|a selection of gnomes|
This year's theme for the family Christmas cakes was gnomes. Having seen a cake in one of my cake decoration magazines, I decided that this was going to be the theme. Well I only do simple these days! (My daughter happened to call in a few weeks ago and saw the magazine opened at the page and said - "oo I would like those on my cake" my reply: "Just as well cos that is what you are getting" - lol!
For once I did the toppers for the cake, before icing the cakes, so the picture above is the selection of gnomes I made.
and now for the cakes:
|7" sugar-pasted cake with little gingerbread men around the sides|
(little men are actually lighter than in photo and more the colour of gingerbread)
|5" gluten free cake with Christmas roses and holly|
|sugar-pasted cake with a little cheat as I was getting tired -|
plastic holly and robin and sugar paste christmas roses (my cake so
allowed to cheat!)
|Royal iced cake for my son-in-law. Kept it simple, although|
he did request a pond which I didn't add!
