Best Christmas Cake Ideas

One of the best ideas for decorating your Christmas cake is to adorn your cake with wood pines. This will create a wintery cake for Christmas. You can spray some glitter over the cake or spray it white. Decorating with pine cones creates beautiful winter scenery on the cake.

Snowflake Christmas cake makes up for one of the best Christmas cake ideas. For this, you would need sugar paste and lustre dust. Knead sugar paste, spread some lustre dust over it and cut it into the shape of snowflakes in different sizes. Once, you are done cutting al the snowflakes, paste them on the cake and finish the cake by wrapping a ribbon around your beautiful snowflake cake.

You can also opt for stars instead of snowflakes. Beautiful stars scattered over the cake look really very gorgeous. You can give star effects on the icing. Take a star pattern rolling pin and roll it over the fondant icing. This will create the star effect by leaving the star marks on the fondant. Now spread this fondant over the cake. To make this cake 3D, you can stick the stars on the cake. Cut the stars from the sugar paste the way you cut the snowflakes and stick them over the cake. You can further decorate this Christmas cake with beautiful and quirky toppers.
