Everyone loves Christmas and its that time of year to start organising the festivities now so you can relax and enjoy the big day!

I was inspired by the wonderful shape and colour of the Poinsettia and thought this would make a very distinctive design.

This cake is decorated in traditional Christmas colours – red, green and gold and all of it is deliciously edible.

If you’d like me to decorate a similar cake for Christmas 2012 then please feel free to contact me for a quote.

It’s nice to do things for others at Christmas time so I thought it was a lovely idea when one of the members of the local Sugar Craft Guild suggested the we should each decorate some mini Christmas Cakes and donate them to the local Homeless Charity for their Christmas meal.

These are the 3 that I made.

Each of the poinsettia leaves are individually made and are lined in edible gold paint along the edges. Red is always an awkward colour to make in icing, but I am quite pleased with the vividness of these leaves.

I modelled this little angel character on a porcelain Christmas tree decoration and think I have captured quite an angelic little face.
