This rich fruit festive eight-inch cake is adorned with pine cones, pistachios, holly and berries, acorns, fruit berries, walnuts and ... Oh, I think that's it actually. Not one nutcracker will be required to eat these decorations though, they've been handcrafted from fondant! Every single one!
The moulds/molds can be purchased from Katy Sue Designs, I used:
These silicone moulds/molds are excellent quality and I would thoroughly recommend them.
Even before adding some petal dust, the walnuts looked pretty realistic!
Having made each item, in half, then stuck them together with edible glue. An awesome look for all the nuts, berries and pinecones.
My daughter, sister and myself, spent some hours making these between us and once almost dry, they were glued and allowed to dry completely before adding to the top of the cake.
Sprinkled with a little edible luster dust, allowed to dry and it's ready to be delivered to my family for their Christmas table this year.
