Attaching Decorations to Christmas Cake | Cake Decorating


All I’m going to do is, you can either take
a little bit of water, just to help it stick, or a little bit of frosting. Just make sure all of the dust is off of it. I’m going to use a little water and just give
it a flip, just lightly and that’s going to kind of soften those sugars and help it stick
to the fondant that’s already on the cake. Just a little drop. Now, around we go. It’s going to start by me. I’m going to try not to ruin my border. So be a little gentle about it but it’s going
all the way around the cake. This is kind of a very Avant-garde Christmas
cake. You can see how cute that even is now. And now you can see I just swirled a little
red fondant or white fondant with a little red food coloring and I’m going to roll that
out as well. Great. So this one I’m going to make a little bit
smaller. I’m really just looking for something to go
on the top of my cake so I’m just going to be very, kind of fun, about it. Don’t feel like you have to make it perfect. And same thing, just a little bit of water
so it will stick. Whoops. If it breaks just keep on going. And here I’m just going to kind of swirl it
together, kind of whimsical. Now last but not least I have a couple of
fun additions. So, a little bit of frosting as glue. Here I have a couple of stars that are really
cute. This is just yellow fondant and I rolled it
out and then I just brushed it with a little bit of gold luster. You can just put a couple of stars around
the outside. Okay, there’s that. And these are just some malt balls and I rolled
them in a little bit of gold luster dust as well just to kind of add a little extra something. And that is it, a really fun, Avant-garde,
Christmas cake.
