9. Finishing Touches

The Exploding Santa Cake makes an excellent Christmas cake but can equally be adapted to suit other occasions by adapting the figures on top of the cake. Creating the angled shape, applying neat stripes and adding models makes this a challenging cake to tackle. For those of you who are professional cake decorators, this cake retails at £125 so certainly skills worth learning.

NOTE: In this video, Paul inserts wires straight into the cake. This should be done via posy pick to avoid any cross contamination.
