12 Of The Most Amazing Christmas Cake Decorating Ideas

By now, you probably have your Christmas cake made and are dousing it in a little whiskey every other day - or hour!

Way back when, the standard method for decorating a Christmas cake was a layer of marzipan, held steadfast to the cake with some jam, followed by icing with snowy icing peaks all around the edges, and a plastic Christmas ribbon around the edges for a bit of added 'oooh' factor.

So if you are on the hunt for some modern decorating inspiration, look no further than these twelve little beauties!
