This is my Winter Christmas cake for the December issue of Cake Central Magazine. The cake is airbrushed fondant, with fondant hills and birds, with royal icing trees, berries, snowflakes.
Last-minute Christmas cake recipe
This moist fruit cake doesn't need to be fed so it's the perfect last-minute Christmas cake. The cake itself is very easy to make – the tricky part is the icing, but you can obviously decorate it however you please. For this recipe you will need a deep 25cm/10in round cake tin, an electric hand whisk or freestanding mixer, a cake smoother and a piping bag fitted with a plain nozzle.
