Cake or pudding??

baking, cakes, christmas, fondant icing

Very quick post as I am knee deep in fondant icing! Just a peek at some of my festive cakes on sale for guernsey charities on Saturday. Had fun with this spherical cake posing as a traditional Christmas pudding. The brown fondant is actually chocolate flavour, so traditionalists may find that a step too far on a boozy rich fruit cake. Having recently discovered how wonderful modelling chocolate is an alternative to 50/50 fondant and flower paste, I have used it for the holly leaves and berries.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
