Christmas Cakes made by Ms. Johnston’s TY class 2011/2012

This year, as always the TY class before Christmas baked and decorated some amazing Christmas cakes that looked simply too good to eat.  The winning design (Choir Boys) was voted for by teachers and students,  and was a very deserving winner.

We used Rachel Allen’s Luxury Christmas Cake Recipe http://www.rachelallen.co.uk/recipes_december08.html and it was very tasty and certainly luxurious.

We bought a lot of the equipment for icing in Kitchen Compliments http://www.kitchencomplements.ie/kc/Main/Home.asp on Chatham Street, the shop is like an Aladdins Cave of goodies for icing and decorating.  We used some of their pearl shimmer dust, holly leaf cutters, food colourings and smoothers.

Well done girls, I hope you enjoyed eating the cakes.
