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!
