Gingerbread Man Christmas Cake

Uncategorized | December 18, 2011 | By

As soon as I saw Ruth Clemens Gingerbread Man Christmas Cake at The Pink Whisk, I knew I had to try to make something similar with the cake I made from the Delicious Magazine recipe.  The Gingerbread Man is made from chocolate fondant.

 I surrounded the cake with little gingerbread men also made from chocolate fondant. Check out my little perpetual gingerbread house which I made last year, a  totally non-edible decoration!
and the other house is a lovely 3D Christmas card which was sent by friends from Malaysia.
You can see by the decorations on my dresser that I have a bit of a thing about gingerbread men and you can see where the little house is on display.

    Super cute cake decoration! I've never used chocolate fondant before – is it the same as regular fondant. Love your cute little gingerbread house! It all looks so pretty and festive 🙂

    Yes, chocolate fondant is the same as ordinary fondant. I got it in Tesco, so should be available everywhere.

    I guess it's because you've got a bit of a thing about gingerbread men that you've done such a brilliant job. Love the little ones around the edge too.

    What cute cake decorations! I particularly like the gingerbread men going around the sides of the cake. I love the string of gingerbread men on your dresser too.

    Chocolate fondant sounds like my thing – anything that's not marzipan! This is the cutest cake! I love his candy cane.
