Created originally for American Cake Decorating Nov/Dec 2015 issue and has since been recreated for a mini tutorial. I hope you will find this festive holiday cake tutorial
Please Note: I wanted this holiday cake to be glamorous, shimmery, festive and fun; and used disco dusts to achieve the high sparkle. Similar to wired sugar flowers, the baubles on this cake is purely for decoration and should be peeled back and discarded before digging in.
I also think this could be lovely on round tiers as well as a sheet cake carved into the shape of a tree. You can also add a little food colouring to sugar or use ready made sanding sugar, or edible glitter in lieu of disco dusts. Hope you enjoy!
