I love Christmas time, I had made the actual Cherry Brandy Christmas Cake at the end of November and have fed it Brandy and Cherry Brandy weekly. It’s going to be a boozy cake!

This year I decided to make a Snowman inspired Christmas cake.IMG_5085

This was actually pretty quick cake to decorate, only took about 1/2 an hour.

I would usually only decorate the cake maybe a week or so before Christmas to make the cake is still moist from the Brandy and not too wet so the icing sticks well.IMG_5080

I was rather impressed on how well it turned out, it was easier than it looks.IMG_5079

With cute snowman, I did think about grating a little fondant over the top to make it look like snow, but I just ran out of icing.

Place the Christmas Cherry Brand Cake on to a cake plate/board/case

Heat up a little apricot jam and cover the cake with a light layer to ensure the marzipan/fondant sticks. My husband is not a fan of marzipan to I didn’t put any on. If you are using marzipan cover with a layer of marzipan and allow to dry for a day or so before adding fondant.

Knead some white fondant and then roll out biggest enough to cover the cake.

To make a snowman roll out a bigger ball for the body, slightly smaller ball for the head and 2 arms.

Add some brown eyes and buttons, an orange carrot nose and make a small black hat. Stick on with edible glue and stick on the cake.

Using brown icing make a small log shed mold into a rectangle and using a knife make indents to simulate wood effect.

Add some trees by colouring some icing green, shape into a cone shape and snip to make tree effect. Add a red scarf to the snowman.
