Reindeer Christmas Cake

The making of this year’s Christmas Cake was a joint effort between my younger sister and I. My sister took care of actually making the cake and I was left to decorate.

I went for a reindeer design, using cookie cutters to cut out the shapes from royal icing. Perhaps I should’ve gone for thinner icing for the shape to make it look a bit neater?

I finished it off with a thick, grey, polka dot ribbon from IKEA.

I’m slightly disappointed with these photos because I wore a bright red top whilst taking them which reflected on the white surfaces, meaning I had to adjust the contrast of all my images – but enjoy anyway!

Some slight cracking – oops!

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas!
