Vintage Santa

Created for Half Baked – The Cake Blog www.thecakeblog.com

My inspiration for this cake was vintage nostalgia. I took some fond memories from my childhood, such as Christmas presents wrapped in brown paper. Growing up we didn’t have much money, so we were always creative at Christmas time, wrapping our few gifts in cut up brown paper bags and newspaper. We always did our best to make them look pretty by hand coloring on them or adding glitter or ribbon. I still love the look of gifts wrapped in brown paper and embellished with hand made items. I love how rustic yet classic they look. Today, I love to decorate with vintage Christmas décor, my favorite being images of vintage Santa Claus or vintage toys.

We used to wrap our presents the same way when I was young. Only our present from Santa came in shiny Christmas wrapping paper. This is pure beauty! Love it!
