  • For a simple but effective scrumptious Christmas cake, this design is a winner – complete with edible baubles and tree-top star

    Ingredients

    • Small amount of yellow sugarpaste
    • 100g green sugarpaste
    • Multicoloured dagrees
    • Small star cutter
    • Christmas tree cookie cutters

    Method

    • Cover your Christmas cake with marzipan and sugar paste.

    • Start by kneading the yellow sugarpaste to soften it and roll it out, then cut out 3 stars.

    • Roll out the green sugarpaste and cut out 3 tree shapes. Brush a little water on to the trees where the baubles are to be positioned and then stick the dragees in place, then stick on the stars. Mix some of the green sugarpaste with water to make a sticky glue, and use it to stick the trees on to the cake. Wrap a ribbon around the cake.
