This Homemade Christmas Scene Design is the first ever cake scene sugarpaste models I have ever made. The ladies at work, set a challenge of bringing something in to eat for a Christmas buffet so I decided I would make a Christmas scene.
The cake on the right is a normal Christmas fruitcake, fed with brandy, covered in marzipan then covered with fondant.
The round cake to the left was Madeira sponge with strawberry jam filling covered in vanilla flavoured buttercream and white fondant.
The large snowman at the back was built from sponge with vanilla buttercream covered in white fondant with fondant hat etc. I made sufficient sugarpaste figure for everyone in the office. They were Penguins, snowmen, reindeer, fir trees, polar bear and a santa with a bag of parcels.
After talking with a local cake maker, I discovered that the penguins could be made far easier. I used white fondant with a black jacket and she advised black with white front which was far easier. The ice was melted Glacier mints.
The office was amazed with the result and I was pleased it was so well received so much so I started making more.
Keep an eye out for my future creations.
