Finished Christmas Cake

I have a bit of a blog backlog (guilty face). As a result, in mid February, I am now uploading a picture of my finished Christmas cake (even guiltier face).

Sugarpaste Dogs

I’m back after a bit of a Holiday Hiatus! My Grandad turned 70 on Monday and we’re having a dinner for him at the weekend. I offered to make the cake!

My grandparents have two Kerry Blue dogs and my Grandad walks them twice a day so I decided to attempt making two Kerry Blue dogs for the cake!

I’ll be making a chocolate biscuit cake tomorrow. I’ll post a picture when the whole thing is iced!
