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.
