Modern Christmas Cake

Idea gallery #1116
  • 6" and 8" cakes
  • red, pink, light green and dark green fondant
  • white buttercream icing
  • rolling pin
  • patchwork cutters
  • pastry bag
  • tip #4
Cover 8" cake with pink fondant and 6" with light green fondant. (Tip- add a small amount of brown fondant or brown coloring to all fondant colors to achieve slightly muted colors as shown in picture.) Roll fondant very thin on greased surface and cut out with gift and tree cutter/embossers. Allow to dry slightly before trying to attach to cake. Since cut-outs are greased on back they should easily attach to cake. Repeat with all colors. Overlap cut-outs when placing on cake. Pipe white ball border with #4 tip along bottom edge of both tiers. Using same tip pipe dots randomly all over both tiers.
