As always I am late starting my Christmas cards and since I have over 50 to do, I thought I'd better get a move on! I had a flash of inspiration over weekend and decided it would be a fab idea to do a card and cake 'combo' as a great Christmas gift.

High Hopes Wee Three Kings was an obvious choice as the stamp is the perfect size for both the card and cake, and looks wonderful inked up and coloured.

The cake is a 6" marzipan and iced fruit cake which i left to set up for a few days to ensure a smooth firm surface to apply the stamp to. The image was used as you would normally but painted with black food colouring instead of ink, and then coloured in with food colours , making everything edible. The great thing about it is that any mistakes can be easily wiped off ready to start again! I piped the sentiment to match the card (Wise Men Still Seek Him) and finished with a sprinkle of edible glitter and decorative ribbon.

The card is made from an A6 card blank, with decorative papers, ribbon and bow. The image was stamped in black, coloured with shimmer paints and watercolours and finished with Stickles. The sentiment 'Wise Men Still Seek Him' was stamped in back and cut out with decorative scissors. I added a Prima Definitions Pebble to finish with the word 'Adore' on it.

The Pebbles will be available soon at
