East End Cake Decorators - December 2011 Meeting

This was the last meeting of 2011.  We had a pot luck, a fun gift exchange and show and tell which included this pretty little chalet brought in by our long-time member, and the Christmas cakes below.
All this takes is a few cookies.  Two whole ones for the roof, two trimmed for the front and back, and one cut in half for the sides.  The trimmed bits are used for the chimney.  Then decorate.  

The challenge for this meeting was to only use the holly leaf cutter to decorate a Christmas cake.  There were a couple of variations:  the top left has a poinsettia made from red holly leaves, and the sleigh in the front is a clever way of using larger holly leaves.
The next meeting will be on January 22nd at St. Margaret's in the Pines, Lawrence Avenue near Kingston Road in Scarborough.  Cynthia Lewis will be demonstrating the correct way to do brush embroidery.
