Christmas Cake Decorations – Clay Forest

We are not fans of either Christmas Cake or Christmas pudding in our house (nor mince pies for that matter). We tend to go large for the christmas lunch, then early evening, round it off with a nibble on the left overs and a slab of chocolate log. For once Jamie wanted to help me make something, so we bust out the supplies, to make some sophisticated christmas cake decorations for our Yule Log.

Materials

  • Polymer clay in a variety of colours
  • Cocktail sticks
  • Superglue

We used polymer clay, but you could just as easily use salt dough, fondant icing or marzipan coloured with food dye.

Method

Make around 4-5 balls, in random random sizes for each colour.Christmas Cake Decorations - Clay ForestChristmas Cake Decorations - Clay ForestRoll out one end to a point, and flatten the bottom into a cone (or tree) shape. Stick a cocktail stick in the base of each, and bake according to the instructions on your polymer clay.Christmas Cake Decorations - Clay ForestUnfortunately ours changed colour a lot in the oven.  I did follow the instructions to the letter.  Next time, I would reduce the heat by 10 degrees or so.Christmas Cake Decorations - Clay ForestAnd Plant them in your desired Chrismas dessert.  These would look fantastic on a christmas cake with billowy snowdrifts of royal icing…..maybe next year I should make a choc cake with white chocolate icing.Christmas Cake Decorations - Clay Forest A hefty sprinkle of icing sugar  snow….Christmas Cake Decorations - Clay Forest
