A very pretty, pretty easy cake to make. Even though it doesn't look like it from the instructions....) This turned out the first time I made it, and my in-laws thought I bought it somewhere! Nope! Made all by me! You can use whatever candy type decorations you want, but I stuck with only the Marzipan, making holly leaves and berries. Then I wrote 'Merry Christmas' on top of the cake, and that was it! I know it looks like a long process to make this, but it's worth the effort.
