What a cute and easy to make design, perfect for those winter celebrations or for anyone off on a skiing holiday.  Paul makes great use of moulds to take care of much of the time consuming elements of the design, but uses the feature pom-pom to give it a personal touch. Colours and patterns can be easily changed, but the concept is there and easy to follow.

In this tutorial you will learn how to:

  • Carve a simple 3D cone shape
  • Fill and smooth ganache onto a 3D shape
  • Create a simple sugarpaste knitted patterns
  • Create a furry effect sugapaste pom-pom
