Its time to begin the Christmas Cakes. And of course I need some help – but they have to have the hat (of course) and have cakes in the genes. Please welcome…my granddaughter ! (round of applause) What a lovely day in the bakehouse today.
OK, i know it was a week or so back, but i’ve been run off my feet doing handbag cakes, cake pops, 3 tier cakes. Wow, what a week. Its my day job so i’m certainly getting lots of practice making cakes. This one was a simple one more in line with the cakes i do for coffee shops. If you look just behind this one – theres another valentines cake. Must be two Geordie lads out there with high emotional intelligence i’d say.
Nearly time for Christmas Cakes to start going to their new homes after many weeks of feeding with brandy to make them nice & moist. Mmmmm.
As a change from last years Santa going down the chimney Christmas Cake theme, i designed this theme for this year. The tree & bush on the cake are just different sizes of stars – you need a lot of cutters but the end result is great.
This is going out in a plain white cardboard box because its too tall for the boxes i’m using on the others.
