Noel Nesters Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake, turned out fantastic! Everyone at my Christmas party loved it. It was very easy to make, (if you already are used to working with fondant). I used the "Nature Designs" fondant & gumpaste mold by wilton to form the branches, instead of cutting them out by hand. I trimmed them to fit the cake, and also used the viener matt to make impressions on the holly leaves. It was beautiful, and very minimal work. I think even someone new to fondant could do this. The cake itself is very pretty and all of my guests just loved it. :)
