12 Days of Christmas :: 6 Bauble Cakes

The absolute penultimate moment of Christmas for me is decorating the tree. I especially love baubles. I'm always buying more. It's actually amazing how quickly the money flies out of my purse where Christmas is involved, but especially Christmas decorations. I'm slightly obsessed. So I had to have baubles feature in this series.

This is my first time covering spheres with fondant. I was a lot less amazing at it than I had hoped. I need some serious practise here, cause ew.

Cakes are dark chocolate and raspberry cakes, baked in hemisphere pans, joined and crumb-coated in buttercream before being covered in fondant.

Lots of pictures and the recipe at the bloggity: [link]

"Ew," she says. Bah. I couldn't make these if you gave me ten years and a million dollars. I don't know how you could have made these look any better. Don't dis yourself.
