Holly cake

I wanted to make a sponge Christmas cake for an Aunt. As you can imagine , with four children, the run-up to Christmas is extremely hectic. This needed to be a simple cake that I could decorate quickly. I used a garrett frill cutter for the five frills then used the same cutter without its inner piece to make a plaque for the centre of the cake. I dusted the board, frills and plaque with snowflake lustre powder. I piped the message and added the holly leaves and berries. Finally I softened sugar paste and piped a snail trail around the tops of the frills and between the cake and board.
