Christmas is such a fun time and we have been working hard to create some wonderful one off cakes for our nearest and dearest.
I had to share this latest creation with you as the inspiration for this cake came to me way back in September as I began seeing all sorts of decorations and cards start to pop up.
I love tradition and adore classical designs but we pride ourselves at Sugar High on being able to push the envelope in terms of taking something traditional and funking it up (see our Scuba and Rock climbing cakes).
Instead of decorating a fruit cake for the recipient in our usual way – we wanted to create a striking centrepiece for the table that could be enjoyed with a cup of tea after Christmas Dinner.
In a house that will be flooded with Children expectant to see what Santa will leave for them under the tree and with the hosts having the best collection of Christmas toys, lights and figurines I have ever seen – I had to raise the bar on what to present them with.
Needless to say, they love it and are already talking about where it is going to be placed on Christmas Day.
I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed creating it . I had so much fun.
As with all of our cakes – 99% is edible with only some internal supports that cant be eaten.
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy 2012.
From all of us here at Sugar High Cakes.
