How to decorate a chocolate cake for Christmas video

What you'll need

Cake

The video shows a two-layer chocolate cake. Use your favourite recipe, or try one of these:

• Chocolate cake
• Rich dark chocolate cake
• Chocolate cherry cake

If plain chocolate isn't your thing, the sky's the limit! You can use the same decorations and icing for almost any cake, including everything from gingerbread to fruit cake:

• Moist gingerbread cake
• Christmas fruit cake
• Orange sponge cake
• Chocolate fruit cake

Icing

The video shows three different icings: buttercream, fondant and meringue. You can make all three from scratch, or you can cheat and buy ready-rolled fondant. Here are some recipes to get you started:

• Buttercream icing recipes
• Fondant icing recipes
• Fluffy meringue icing

Gingerbread biscuits

Bake a batch of your favourite gingerbread cut-outs, save a few for the cake, then put the rest in the biscuit tin!
