Christmas Cake

Christmas Cake, Painted Buttercream Cake, Christmas Cake Decorating, Vintage Christmas Car, Christmas Decorations, Gift Wrapping, Christmas Tree CakeI hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  We spent the holiday at home, and it was a quiet week for us (at least, as quiet as things can be when you have 1 and 3 year old boys who are so excited to wake up and discover that Santa brought presents the night before).  We played outside, did a little more baking, watched Christmas movies, ate cookies, and just enjoyed time with our boys.  We had a simple Christmas dinner of prime rib with cabbage rolls and kale salad, and chocolate cream pie for dessert.  And, this Christmas Cake.

I just love everything about this cake design.  To me, this says "home for the holidays", with the vintage car piled with presents and a Christmas tree, traveling along snowy, tree-lined country roads, heading home to see family and friends, drinking hot chocolate by a warm fire while the snow drifts outside, and eating too much apple pie and ginger molasses cookies.
