Presents, Presents, and more Presents!

Last week, Jenny and I had lots of orders for Christmas present cakes! It was busy, but we had a lot of fun working on these. Here are just a few of the ones we did together. These were all iced in buttercream with marshmallow fondant accents. The bows and ribbons were also made from fondant.

More Christmas Goodies!

Yesterday I made 2 cakes and some holiday brownies that were ordered for a teacher's Christmas luncheon. I was able to try out an idea I had seen for a "cup of hot cocoa" cake.

Cup of hot cocoa (6" round, 2-layer)- $25 (serves 8-10)

The hot cocoa cake is completely covered in marshmallow fondant with fondant snowmen, chocolate buttercream cocoa, and a marshmallow border.

Christmas gift (8 "square, 2-layer ) - $28 (serves16-20)

This is a chocolate cake iced in buttercream with fondant dots, bow, and tag.

Frosted brownies with holly and berries - $12/dozen

Here is the snowglobe cake I made for our Christmas Cookie Party last night. It's not much different from the practice cake, but here it is. The whole cake is covered in marshmallow fondant. The borders, trees, and snowmen are also made of marshmallow fondant.

Snowglobe Cake - $38 (serves 15-20)

Snowglobe "practice" cake

A while back, I saw an idea for a snowglobe cake. Of course, I had to try it! I'm planning to make a cake next week for a Christmas party, so I thought I would try the snowglobe and see if it would work. This practice cake isn't totally complete, but you get the idea! I didn't get to finish decorating the bottom cake, but I'm planning to write "Let it snow!" and add some snowflakes. This is a ball cake, covered in marshmallow fondant, sitting on a 6 inch round cake. All the decorations are also fondant. This cake serves 15-18, so it would be perfect for a small Christmas party or get-together. I'll post the finished snowglobe cake I make for the party on Tuesday.
