My First Christmas Cake - Part II (The Decorating)

Following this post a few weeks ago I have today finished decorating my first ever Christmas cake.

Decorating officially started yesterday when I marzipaned it:
And today I iced and decorated. I stupidly started before having any dinner as I under-estimated how long it would take.

I am quite proud of my first Christmas cake & my first ever iced cake with proper icing decorations but please do let me know what you think!!
I am just keeping my fingers crossed that it survives until Christmas day in the same condition and that it tastes ok! I'll report back next week!

Looks great. I love the holly.
I gave you a virtual wave on Sunday while watching Liverpool Nativity on a shot over the Mersey!

Thanks Jules & Ginger :)

Jules, I'd have waved back if I'd known :) It was quite good as we watched it in the telly (after deciding it was too cold to venture out to Liverpool) & we could see the ferry sailing from Seacombe to Liverpool at the same time it was on the TV!!

I don't like Christmas cake actually, but I think it looks like you've done a great job, especially for your first time! x

Thanks girl with the golden touch. I'm not a fan of Christmas cake either but I like the making of the cake bit :)
