Nothing says Christmas cake better than adorned with a sugar Poinsettia does it? Made this simple Christmas cake with a single poinsettia on for that ultimate Christmas wow factor.
Well, This was my first Christmas Cake this year. And I really enjoyed making it. I love Poinsettias and what better than a Christmas Cake with Sugar Poinsettia
It truly was a simple and sweet cake. The bottom tier is my Vanilla Cream Cake with Swiss Meringue Buttercream and the top is my Chocolate Chiffon Cake with Velvet American Buttercream
Well there is nothing much to tell you about the cake in the making but for those of you that would love to know
The Christmas Trees are made with just this simple cutters. I made them in two shades of green. The large and medium size. We've shared more about Christmas trees in my previous Christmas tutorials already.
The snowman and the cake borders
The Snowman as well is a cookie cutter and the snow is the tiny star cutter.
The Borders are simple long sausages of Red and white twisted together.
The gum paste poinsettia
I have already shared with you how I made this Gumpaste Poinsettia Sugar Flower. In fact I shared two ways to make the Gumpaste Poinsettia. One is with the Poinsettia Cutters and the other is with the Gumpaste Poinsettia with leaf cutters. Of course the one made with the poinsettia cutters is a lot more impressive.
Well I hope you like my sweet little Christmas Cake
