Christmas cakes

This Christmas I made two gluten free Christmas cakes: the top one for my family and me and the second as a gift for a very dear friend of mine.

I loved the print on my Cath Kidston Christmas cards of a snowy pastel coloured village and used it as inspiration for my cake. I made the houses out of coloured roll-on icing using square and triangle cutters. The tree was made using star cutters.

Happy Holidays!

  37. Hi Torie, i want to make my daughter Poppy her 6th birthday cake this week and i love the idea of the star cake you've done, but maybe with spots instead?? The thing is ive never used the coloured icing which you roll out before, is it easy to use? And once you open a block do you have to use the whole thing up?? Any advice or tips would be gratefull received! Visit me at my blog if you like...Kirsty x
