It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas........

Among the 3 cakes we did this weekend, we also managed to make a couple for our own festivities. The first is a cake we did for Phil's company Christmas party which Mel, Phil and kids attended last night.

Mel decided on a Santa cake this year and with Phil's request the cake is vanilla with vanilla mousse & fresh strawberries for the filling. Santa's hat and face are fondant and his beard & mustache along with the hat trimmings are created with butter cream.

This second Christmas cake was also for a early Christmas gathering of a few neighbours and friends which has become an annual thing. Hosted by our dear friends and neighbours Wendy & Kim. 

Last year is was cupcakes this year I decided that a Christmas themed cake was in order.  This stocking is vanilla cake with a little kick. We crushed some candy canes and threw it into the batter which proved to be a hit. We filled it with white chocolate mousse. All details are fondant with real candy canes filling the stocking.

It was a fun night shared by all and even Santa dropped by for a visit.
Remember it's only 23 sleeps until Christmas!
