X-mas house by ginas-cakes X-mas house by ginas-cakes
With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I'd start adding my festive designs :)

This is a fruit cake, covered in marzipan and fondant icing, inspired from a German ornament I had....before it got broken by the kids!

Beautiful :) I thought it was a gingerbread house too!
So, are all the decorations fondant? The doves look very gingerbread-y to me!
The snow effect is great as well; not too fluffy, not too powdery.

Yes, all the decorations are fondant. I try to make as much as I can to test myself really :)
It's great to have a free run with a cake when it's for family.

Yes, having freedom of design is great because there's no pressure to achieve an exact replica of anything, or to meet specifications.

I thought it was a real gingerbread house, making my attempt to one -ahem- look so ... shabby... I'm kinda glad to hear that it's done with marzipan, though it still looks awesome =^.^=

Yours looks ok, and the white stuff (royal icing) is the glue of cake-making....brilliant stuff :)

*goes to check it out* and indeed, seeing how I've just started working with fondant, and comparing that with the simple cakes I started out with, I'm pretty proud of where I am now. But it's never enough, mwuahahaha XD

You should certainly feel proud...and I'm sure you will be makeing some great cakes :)
