christmas igloo cake

Paul makes the igloo cake using choc cake but I was wondering if it is possible to use fruit cake. Will I have problems carving a fruit cake?

shops sell ‘dome’ type xmas cakes i think? if not try carving one and by the time you have put marzipan and sugarpaste on and scored the lines any imperfections should be gone. x

Hi Michelle

I can’t see why you couldn’t carve a fruit cake. Paul carved one for the goldfish tutorial so it isn’t impossible. The only problems you might encounter would be if the fruit is on the large side and could pop out during carving. I wouldn’t let that deter you from trying because, you can just plug the hole up either with cake scraps or with a little marzipan. Go on be brave have a go! If you do, would love to hear feed back. xx
