Christmas Cake

My first attempt at fondant icing and my very first Christmas Cake.  I am really happy with it, but next time I think my fondant layer needs to be thicker.  Working with fondant takes some practice, but I am not so scared of it anymore.  The cake isn't perfect, but I still love it, and next time with a thicker layer am sure my finish will be smoother.

Some of you may remember my original post about making a Christmas cake, and also remember my original cake was square.  Lets just say when you pour some brandy over your cake before storing, you use only a few tablespoons, not half a cup .... Lets also just say my Christmas Cake Pops are going to be adult only and very yummy!
