    How to Make an Ice Forest Christmas Cake

    Suitable for: Beginners to Intermediates

    Time to Make: Three to four hours

     

    You Will Need

    • Cake of your choice

    • Betty Crocker vanilla frosting

    • Pretzel sticks

    • Renshaw icing in shades of green

    • Candy Melts in Bright White

    • Green sprinkles, glitter and sprinkling sugar

    • Two same sized pieces of Greaseproof paper (approximately 12 by 12 inches)

     

    How to Make

    1. Use your hands to roll the green icing into various sized cones, varying from 3 cm to 8 cm, and insert a pretzel stick into each leaving 5 cm protruding out of the bottom of each tree. Leave the trees to harden overnight.

     

    Top Tip

    You can use pop sticks if you can’t get hold of the pretzels – just remember not to eat them! For an extra indulgent treat you could also use milk and dark chocolate Candy Melts to coat your pretzels or cake pop sticks, to make them look more bark-like.

    2. Brush each tree with a little cooled, boiled water and dip into your choice of glitter or sprinkles. Leave all the trees to dry for 30 minutes.

    3. Melt a bowl of white Candy Melts and using a palette knife spread it thinly onto a piece of greaseproof paper in  long sections.

    4. Place another piece of greaseproof paper on top and roll into a loose cylinder before the Candy Melts harden. Put the cylinder into the fridge for ten minutes until the Candy Melts have set hard.

    5. Remove the cylinder from the fridge and unroll the greaseproof paper – the Candy Melts will crack and break into shards as you unroll.
