Baking is always on my mind, even more so with Christmas approaching! For the last couple of years I have been making ‘alternative’ cakes for Christmas day, as I’m not a fan of the traditional fruit cake! However, I always try to do something a little different, peek-a-boo cakes, pop cakes, fancy decorations and this year will be no different. At the moment I’m trying to work out what kind of cake to bake and how to decorate it, for this I’ve been scouring the internet for ideas and have made a Top 5 list (in no particular order). Hopefully this may help others who are looking for Christmas cake inspiration!
Reindeer Cake – Any form of decorated cakes always works well at Christmas and there are a lot of options to chose from! This one stuck out the most for me due to its simplicity! Chocolate icing piped on, chocolate antlers and simple icing balls for the eyes and nose! It looks so good though and gives you the freedom to use whatever kind of cake mixture – a classic Victoria sponge would work well like this, or coffee, carrot…endless flavor options!
