This was a Christmas present for my parents. It was from a Karen Davies design. The original design used x3 pots of Magic Sparkles on the cake itself, between the ribbons and stars. I used pearl lustre spray instead as I didn't think they would want to eat all those sparkles. This was a fruit cake laced with brandy, then marzipaned and iced. It took more time making all the little parcels than the cake itself. It's nearly New Year and they still haven't cut into it. They say it looks too nice to eat!
