A yummie Christmas :)

Hello everybody,

I just wanted to show you this Christmas cake I made today at '4 The Love of Cake', don't you love it? It isn't made of fondant because I don't really like the taste of that, it's made of marsepein, I have no idea what the English word is for that but it's made of almonds and it's sweet and my husband can eat kilo's of it :).

I can't wait till it's Christmas and I can cut it :). Furthermore I wanted to say a big thank you to Jo, Jeanette, Becky, Mandy and Coco for your gorgeous cards!!! I haven't send everybody Christmas cards back yet I'm affraid... I haven't send any cards yet to family and friends.... I can't believe how late I'm running but I just haven't had any time yet!! I'm going to try to send all my cards out asap but most cards will probably not get to you in time..... I'll do my best though.. I promiss... just need a couple of more hours in every day!!!

Have a great evening everybody!!

    Have a Merry Christmas!


  2. Wow!! This is absolutely amazing Mariska - I would hate to cut into it and mess up the work of art!!

    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and Santa brings you lots of crafty stash!!
