Merry Christmas! So Christmas for 2012 has been and gone and what a busy time it was! I took on four Christmas Cakes this year which is quite a few for me considering I also work full time. They all got completed on time without too much craziness!
Three of the four cakes were for my sister’s family. She was after a fruit, mud and a red velvet cake for Chrissy. Being my sister, she let me have free range on design. I went with a Christmas pudding for the fruit cake, a reindeer design that I had seen one of my other cake decorating friends do on cupcakes and thought it was so cute so I thought would look lovely on a bigger cake too. Thanks Aida Goodwin’s Cakebox! The last cake for this lot was a red velvet Christmas Tree.
We had a slight disaster with the Christmas tree making it to its destination. It was an extremely hot day and during transit got a little squished on the top I’ve been told that the taste was still great and that was the main thing. My first disaster and although I’m unhappy that it had Ito happen, I am glad it was my sister it happened to.
My last Christmas cake for 2012 was a fruit cake for one of my regular customers. She buys her Christmas cake from me every year. This year I went a little fun with her cake, giving her a Santa cake. She seemed quite happy with this and has already placed her order for next year along with a few birthdays in the mean time, gotta love a happy customer
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas filled with plenty of love, joy and laughter!
