Handmade Christmas Cake Decorations

I am linking to the last Knicky Knacks Handmade Christmas Challenge. India and I decided that since our oven still isn't working (yes, Carl still hasn't organised for the electrician to come and change the element and I am not doing it on principle!!) then we will buy a store made cake and decorate it in a Christmas theme.

We used Wilton Ready-to-use fondant and 3 colour pastes (rose, blue and ivory) and spent a few hours making little bits and bobs. India loved it, as it is like play dough but you can eat it :) They are drying at the moment, hopefully they will still be o.k. by Christmas morning :)

This will be my last post before Christmas. I would like to wish you all a Safe and Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday.

Thank you all for taking the time to visit me over the past few months even though my posts have been quite random; a little mix of vintage, collections, and everyday life. Also thanks for all the lovely messages, it gives me reassurance that I am not just talking to myself, and that others share the same passions, and that maybe I'm not as crazy as my husband thinks.

Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas! I hope you get everything you ever wanted and more :)
