Iced Christmas Cake

Our cake came out really well and, after weeks of feeding with brandy, it was ready to be iced.

The first stage was covering it in marzipan, which happened four days before I planned to ice it, to give the marzipan time to dry out a little and prevent the snowy white icing discolouring.

Royal icing was added and then the fun could begin.

I opted for a party atmosphere this year, as it feels like a time to celebrate.  After two very difficult years, I'm starting to see light at the end of the tunnel.

And to finish it off, a festive ribbon.  We will enjoy a slice on Christmas Eve, so I've had a couple of days to admire my finished cake, before we start demolishing it.


  1. Enjoy your slice of that lovely cake today, Marie. I hope you and your husband have a wonderful Christmas:)
