Nuts, Berries and Holly - Festive Cake


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.

  1. You know about cake decoration, different material we can use for this purpose. Luster dust is also main part of it. Edible luster dust for fondant, gum paste, or royal icing decorations a high sheen metallic finish and a hint of color with pearly luster dust. Luster dust comes in a wide variety of colors which we can take from cake supplies and rentals.

  2. Nice article, I found it very informative, we as cakes supplies and rentals offer cup cakes, cookies decoration and packaging supplies, and also offer a range of non-edible and edible luster dusts, sparkle dusts and glitters to make sugar flowers, cakes and cupcakes shine.
