December has seen me decorating quite a few cakes. This cake was for auction at a black tie Christmas party event in aid of a local children's charity. The event was on the 14th Dec.What a great night, lots of music and comedy acts and items been donated to raffle and auction including my cake. The event was held at Blackpool Pleasure Beach!
I thought I would share a few photos of the Winter Wonderland Cake..
The reindeer is made by hand from sugarpaste and hand painted. This cake was a joy to make! I themed the decorations on old vintage Christmas cards. The sleigh was made piece by piece and painted too. Everything is edible and hand made. It took many weeks to make the decorations but I had fun and it went to a fantastic cause!
The snowflakes are made from royal icing.... the cake is a sponge cake with jam and butter cream and on the night 'Donnas Dream House ' charity went home with the cake! So I was very happy it went to the cause I was auctioning it for.
This cake let me go wild with advancing and trying new cake decorating skills. I painted this edible Santa plaque using food colours. His beard sparkled in the light as I used sparkle dust!!
A letter to Santa.....

Wishing you all a magical Christmas and a Happy New Year 2011!!
