The Christmas cake that won't be eaten

You would think that most people would be only too willing to tuck into a cake. But I'm having real problems getting family to eat my Bauble Christmas Cake. It was intended to be eaten at a family Christmas 'do' at my Aunt and Uncle's, I'd received lots super comments about the cake and must admit it looked rather magnificent out on display. There were gasps of "oh my" and "wow" and "that's amazing" and "we can not possible cut into the cake" and you guessed it that is exactly what happened.  No one would cut into the Christmas Bauble cake! Luckily I had also made some snowflake fairy cakes and a snowflake version of butterfly cakes, which were eaten in the blink of an eye.

Who knows maybe by the New Year the Christmas Bauble Cake will be a mere sprinkling of crumbs. Thanks to my cousin for taking these photographs, a chance for her to try our her new camera and very good photographs they are too.
