This cake is headed to my husband’s work for the December birthdays. I wanted something quick to throw together as my weeks lately have been a little crazy! I cut out the fondant/gumpaste blend pine trees the day before and then I was able to assemble this cake (with making icing) in just over an hour. The rest of the icing is buttercream, and I used some white cake sparkles to make the tops “snow like”.
Yes – that says CHRISTMAS. I was editing some pics of cakes I’ve done this week and I ran across 2 cakes from mid/end Dec that I had forgotten to post! So here’s one…better late than never!
This was the December work cake for my husband’s work. It is a 6″ square on a 10″ square, iced in BC and fondant ribbons, bow and holly.
Merry (late) Christmas!
I want to wish you all a very, Merry Christmas! The cake for today is a nativity/Happy Birthday, Jesus cake that I’m bringing to a family get together today. 10″ cake, airbrushed with fondant cut outs.
Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!
I’m always amazed at how fast the month of December flies by. I don’t know why I am STILL surprised by this because it happens EVERY single year. Every year I take part in a cookie exchange where my decorated cookies expected! I love doing exchanges because its a great opportunity to get a variety of tasty things without having to do all that different baking.
So here are the cookies I made this year…I’m particularly fond of the trees & ornaments. My daughters both liked the presents. The fondant bows were a bit tedious but well worth it when I saw the end result.
And later that week I had some leftover cupcakes so I made up some minty icing and striped it to create some mint chocolate cupcakes to donate with some of my cookies for a bake sale. Yum!

Tonight is my 4 yr old daughter’s Christmas program for school. I signed up to bring a sweet treat of course I love working with the blues of winter and snowflakes. So here are some blue iced cupcakes with some Wilton crystal sprinkles for “snow” and royal icing snowflakes that I piped. Boy were they fragile! I’m glad I made extra. But the delicate look of them is just what I wanted… Click the image to see a larger view.
Christmas cookie time! Here’s my latest batch… I’ve made them clickable to enlarge to a bigger pic.
Here’s my stack of gifts ~ a 10″ square and 6″ round + 3 cake ornaments. The bow, all the ornaments and the gold dots are all shimmery/sparkly but it doesn’t show as much in the pic. Bow is made of sugar paste – my first one!
I made this cake for a family Christmas as a birthday cake for Jesus. The building is made of chocolate sugar cookie with icing on top. Figures are fondant. Cake has “For Unto Us A Child Is Born” written around it.
