It is done. It’s very late considering I made the cake back in August. Still, it will be beautifully mature and rich. The icing was slathered on this morning and the panels arranged around the cake. There should have been more if only the gingerbread hadn’t been so nicey.
The house on top is too big and next year I’ll scale it down a bit. The icing doesn’t look professional and considering I had a square-bottomed freezer bag with the corner cut off as my ‘nozzle’ it’s hardly surprising.
I cut far too many corners trying to do it quickly but does it matter? Bettys won’t be running from the competition any time soon, lol. It is cute and it is GOOD. Full of gorgeous fruits and brandy-rich ingredients.
Once again, Happy New Year!
