About Christmas Cake Decorations
Decorating the Christmas cake is a long running tradition. There is a large range of Christmas cake decorations to make your cake extra special, from Christmas trees and mistletoe, to well known seasonal characters such as Santa Claus and Rudolph. The array of accessories available makes it easy to design your perfect Christmas cake.
Edible decorations are another great way to decorate your cake, ensuring that none of your design goes to waste. With various assorted colours of icing, you can craft your very own edible Christmas cake decorations. If you're not very crafty, you can also purchase cutter tools to help produce holly leaves, snowflakes and other Christmas designs which will look great on your cake. A range of edible glitter is also available in a selection of colours.
Many choose to decorate their cakes with ribbon, and for a Christmas feel why not use a red or gold ribbon to wrap around your cake? It could be fastened with a bow, or with special cake glue.
Lettering is another great way to decorate your cake, with festive messages such as 'Merry Christmas' and 'Season's Greetings'. This type of icing can be purchased in tubes or ready to mix up yourself, and is generally softer and easier to pipe out than standard icing.
Plastic letters are another convenient choice, without having to worry about messing up your kitchen. Many Christmas messages can be bought to stick on your cake, giving it a professional finish.
