I iced mine a couple of months ago, the kids made decorations from home made Marzipan, took it to my Sisters last weekend as a gift, and all the icing and marzipan has gone mouldy....... bloody irritating.

I have made 24 little ones for friends and it looks like I am going to have to take all the marizpan off and redo with shop bought icing!! Never again!

Nice Cake mind!

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

Looks fantastic! We don't ice ours because my other half finds the icing too sweet so we do a very minimalist cake and I cracked and started eating ours last week. I've decided this year it's a yule cake, hopefully there'll be a bit left for the solstice :cooldude: .

That looks great! I would love to decorate the cake but I don't like marzipan so ours just has nuts on. Enjoy!
