X'mas Cake - Santa's Elves at Work (Spiced Apricot and Raisin cake with Pineapple and Whipped cream filling, frosted in Vanilla Butter cream)

Santa's Elves at Work

 A harmonious and delicious blend of Spiced Apricot and Raisin cake with Pineapple and Whipped cream filling, frosted in Vanilla Butter cream 

This cake attempts to capture a scene in Santa's  workshop, where his magical elves are at work, wrapping up final presents before Xmas day. My 2 yr old daughter has been so mesmerised with the story of Father Christmas and his coterie of cute, mischievous elves, the gifts, colors and lights of Xmas and this basically was the inspiration behind the theme adapted.

Main Cake Base: 2 layers of spiced Apricot and Raisin cake with a whipped cream and pineapple filling, wrapped in sweet Vanilla butter cream frosting.

Cake Decoration: 100 % edible fondant dyed in varied edible Christmas themed colors has been used to create the final layers and decorations.  Each figurine, including the bows, ribbons and the elves has been delicately handcrafted and intricately detailed to capture the rich colors and mood of the characters 

This deep, rich and gorgeously delicious cake is a perfect fit for your Christmas party with its harmonious balance of taste, texture, scent, colors and the intricate details of the theme adapted, to create a visually stimulating and appetizing pastry . Every single element you see here is edible and delicately crafted to communicate and celebrate the traditions and atmosphere of this festive season .
