I have been so excited to share this post with you all for so long now! If you follow me on social media you may have already seen what this post is because I loved it so much I couldn’t help posting a few photos, but if you didn’t see, my husband and I have done another bake off! We’ve done one in the past (A halloween one, which you can see here), but this one is Christmas Cakes!
We are huge fans of The Great British Bake Off and one of my favourite things they do is show paintings of the bakes in a book so I did paintings of the cakes we wanted to bake so we could make it just like the show!
I have wanted to make a cake like this for years now, and I felt like my baking skills have really improved over the years and I’m really proud of what I did! I think my cake came out pretty close to what I had planned so I’m really happy with it!
I used Zoella’s Gingerbread Cake recipe, which is one of my favourite cake recipes ever! I also used the buttercream recipe from there but added some cinnamon in it! The white icing on top is just a thin royal icing and the Gingerbread house is made with my favourite gingerbread recipe which you can find here. I really love all the rosemary around the bottom and on top as trees. I’m insanely proud of my Christmas cake!
I am so proud of Jason because his cake looks incredible! He did a vanilla cake and the recipe can be found on his blog here. He also used a simple buttercream and a chocolate ganache and used so many amazing christmassy decorations!
We both had so much fun making these and would love to know what you all think of them!
I didn’t make a video for this bake off because Jason is doing vlogmas this year, you can watch it here, but we’ve been doing so much fun Christmas stuff this month, so you should watch them all if you have some spare time!
