The Mellow Christmas Cake 2014

Yesterday Lara and I put our finishing touches to our Christmas Cake. Lara has been with me right from the start of this cake about 7 weeks ago!

Our cake is a Nigella classic - a chocolate fruit cake with coffee liqueur. We used a layer of natural marzipan and then a layer of ready-coloured red fondant icing. I had plans to cut a sleigh and reindeer to cover the top of the cake but after several attempts, I gave up on that idea. This meant that Lara could help me cut all of the pieces using cookie cutters and plastercine cutters! I atached the stars and trees using edible glue.
