Christmas cake ideas are indeed excellent for celebrating any occasion related to the Christmas theme. You can make use of your own creativity in creating the cake so as to make it more unique. Some examples include the Christmas fondant cake, Christmas tree cake, or Christmas sheet cake.
Christmas is a time to pull out all the stops when entertaining. A beautifully decorated cake tells your guests you really care. The cake does double duty by serving as the centrepiece of the buffet or dessert table. Just because your cake is beautiful does not mean you have to spend all day decorating it. When you are finished, place it on a cake pedestal to show it off.
A sheet cake, frosted and then covered with plain rolled fondant, can be the perfect Christmas canvas for a young artist. Use powdered or paste food colouring mixed with a little bit of water to make cake paint, and use regular art brushes — preferably new ones so that you know they’re clean.
You may use a rectangular cake frosted in white as the base. Place a small mirror on the cake for a frozen pond. Cover the edges of the pond with white icing. Frost ice cream cones in green frosting. Add white frosting for snow on the tops. Place the cones on the cake with the opening on the cake and the pointed ends up. Vary the height of the cones on the cake. Sprinkle superfine granulated sugar over the cake including the mirror and cones to mimic a light dusting of snow.
