Maybe but what happens if you don’t or that you don’t like what the shops have on offer and you have a mountain of people coming over soon? Well, the best way to suit everyone is to of course make your own home made cake. What is more, you can make sure everyone is left feeling stuffed, and of course they will talk about your amazing Christmas cakes for years to come!
If you are going to attempt to make your own homemade Christmas cakes, remember, you can use some of your creativity. You can always put your personality into the cakes when decorating so don’t worry. You can easily bake a cake or two and you can make them different shaped cakes. You can go for a nice Christmas candle shape or even a Santa Clause shaped cake. There are a lot of Christmas themes you could try or, just in case you’re not sure about the shape, make a square or round cake.
These cakes can be easier to make! So, once you have your cake base made, think about how you are going to decorate it. If you’re going to for amazing Christmas cakes and making several different ones for different people, think about what they like. You could go for cream and jam for the centre filling and then add icing over the top and add a Christmas snowman or a tree and some presents. However, you could go for fruit cakes as many love these types.
Though, if you’re not a big lover of fruit cakes, you could add maybe fruit jam instead, to the middle of the cake – that way others can still get that fruity taste. You can of course cover the cake once you’ve decided on the filling, with lovely icing – you could add food dye to the mix and have green, red, blue, purple icing – whatever colours you like, you can try them. Once you’ve let the cake set, you can then add chocolate droppings to the top and add your little decorations and designs.
There are many to choose from so have fun when making your homemade amazing Christmas cakes this year!
