Homemade Christmas Snowmen Cupcakes

These great Christmas Snowmen cupcakes are really easy to make but look impressive. I made these for my son's Christmas party at school and they went down a treat!

First make your cupcakes, any type will do. When the cupcakes have cooled down, ice them with white icing (icing sugar mixed with water).

Use fondant icing to make the head. This is really easy to do just roll the fondant icing into a ball shape, and put on top of cupcake when the icing has nearly set.

The eyes, mouth and buttons are just made by just dipping a cocktail stick into some black food colouring. You could always use silver balls for this instead.

The carrot noses and hats/scarfs are made with fondant icing and stuck on with icing. You can decorate them however you like, I made a few Santa hats for some and others wore winter bobble hats.

Coolest Christmas Present Cake 46

Homemade Christmas Present Cake

Homemade Christmas Present Cake

A friend of mine told me about her Christmas tradition of making a birthday cake for Jesus and since I am always looking for new reasons to make a cake I ran with it. This Christmas Present Cake is just two white almond cakes made in 9" square pans filled with chocolate ganache and covered in buttercream then MMF.

Using assorted sizes of circular cookie cutters I just went crazy and mixed and matched them out of the green and red MMF. The bow is also MMF of which I formed loops, allowed to dry for a few days on their sides and then assembled on the cake using red royal icing.

The kids absolutely loved it! And so, a new family tradition was formed for us too.

Coolest Christmas Snowflake Cake 13

Homemade Snowflake Christmas Cake

Homemade Snowflake Christmas Cake

This Christmas snowflake cake is a traditional fruit cake that I covered in marzipan, but you could use any type of cake. I then dyed fondant icing a pale turquoise colour (to resemble a glacier look) and covered the cake with it.

I then brushed it with a moistened brush and dusted it with white polished sugar. A few days previously I made all the snowflakes using fondant icing and a plunger snowflake cutter. I left them to harden and then sprayed them with a pearl lustre spray.

I stuck silver balls on the larger ones with writing icing. I then arranged the snowflakes around the cake sticking them on with white writing icing. I was really pleased with how this cake turned out.

Christmas Morning Cake

Christmas Morning Cake

I made a rich fruit cake 10ich x 10inch then cut this in half. One half made the bed and the other half I cut to make the bedside table and the presents.

All the cakes have been covered in marzipan and royal icing. The presents were then wrapped in wrapping paper. I made the boy, tree,and everything else from marzipan.

It took me 9 hours to complete this Christmas scene cake.
