This year I made Christmas cakes for gifts. I'm pretty new to covering cakes in fondant(I think this was my 3rd attempt?) and I always make my own (it's really hard to find it in stores here and really extremely expensive) and I think it was too soft this time. I also made the marzipan and was really surprised that there is raw egg yolks in a lot of marzipan recipes. I hope it doesn't go bad and cause problems for all my soon-to-be-in-laws that got the cakes:))

I left the fondant out on this one because my fiances father doesn't like his desserts to be too sweet.

How pretty! Did you use a mold to do the birds on your future father in law's cake? Smiley

I did use a mould for the birds and I added a bit of Tylo powder to fondant before using it. (actually my fiance helped a bit with that part of the decorating and made most of the birds:))
