Christmas cake

I have prepared this Christmas cake with sugar paste on the occasion of the lunch I held in my office together with the guys who work at Ivano's. This year there were 15 of us and I tried to do my best to delight them with dishes we had never tasted, or at least not prepared by me. After the Danube, baked pasta, roast with milk, potatoes with sausages and various appetizers, I served two desserts. For this Christmas cake I chose to use my heaven cake as a base and for the decorations I chose a topping of sugar paste with the addition of small holly leaves, to make it I made use of the help of Carolina and I am really satisfied with the result we have obtained!
