Today I had to teach a cake class. I figured since I had to make a cake, that I would make a Christmas themed cake for my boys.
This cake is chocolate cake, chocolate frosting and peppermint fondant (I added a little bit more than 1/4 tsp of peppermint extract to the fondant mixture as I was making it)...quite yummy!
I made the snowman yesterday so that it could dry. I added Gumtex to the fondant mixture to give it stability.
I then added trees, snowballs around the bottom and made a tree for the top.
I didn't have the right tool to make the tree, so I came up with my own little tree creation. I'm quite happy with how it turned out, especially with the snow (powdered sugar) sprinkled on the top.
My boys cannot wait to eat it after dinner...ok, I admit it...me too!!
