Here are the cakes I made for family this christmas.
For the two square ones I tried a different method for the lettering. I used royal icing but piped the letters out on parchment then when dry transferred them to the cake. I did a couple of sets which was good as i did break a few so was pleased to have some back ups.
I think I like doing the rectangle shaped cake for fruit cakes. This time I tried a piping the lettering directly on the cake using two layers white on the bottom and a wriggly red top layer. The poinsettia flowers were all piped royal icing.
