For my birthday (which falls on Christmas every year), I made a simple yellow cake with chocolate buttercream frosting.
To decorate it, I attempted to create holly leaves and berries. You can see the green and red frosting, but as for beautiful holly scattered across the cake, all there is are blobs of buttercream. I think I need some more practice!
The finished product had some semi-sweet chocolate drizzled to make "twigs" for the "holly," and was dusted with powdered sugar for a snowy effect. Yum!
Thanks, Mom, for taking the pictures!
