  • About 30g red sugarpaste icing

  • About 70g brown sugarpaste icing

  • About 20g white sugarpaste icing

  • Edible glue

  • About 5g orange or yellow sugarpaste icing

  • 2

    -3 Flake chocolate bars

You'll also need
  • 4 1/2

    -6cm holly or ivy cutter, or both

  • Small paintbrush

To finish, optional
  • Green and red lustre dust

  • Ribbon

Directions

  1. A few days before you want to make the cake decoration, in a small pan gently warm jam to loosen. Pass through a sieve into a small bowl. Put cake on a board and brush top and sides with sieved jam. Set aside.
  2. Lightly dust a work surface with icing sugar and roll out marzipan until large enough to cover cake (see GH Tip). Lift on to cake and use your hands to gently smooth into position. Trim excess. Leave overnight at room temperature for the marzipan to harden slightly.
  3. On the same day, line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Lightly dust a work surface with icing sugar and roll out the green sugarpaste until it is 3mm thick. Stamp out holly or ivy leaves (or both) and lay on to some lightly scrunched foil sausages on the lined baking sheet, to help give the leaves some movement. Reroll and stamp out trimmings (you need about 25 leaves). If you’ve made holly leaves, use about 5g of the red sugarpaste to make tiny balls for the holly berries and add to the lined sheet. Leave to harden overnight.
  4. When your marzipan has hardened, lightly dust a work surface with icing sugar and roll out the white sugarpaste until large enough to cover cake. Brush the marzipan with brandy/gin/vodka/water to moisten. Lay over the white sugarpaste, smoothing all over with your hands as before. Trim excess.
  5. Transfer to a cake stand or plate. If you have time, allow the white layer to dry overnight at room temperature. If you don’t have time, carry straight on.
  6. To model the robins: use about 25g brown sugarpaste to model the first body, shaping a head, plump breast and pinching out a tail (you can mark it with a knife to look like feathers). Repeat with 25g more to make another adult body, and about 15g to shape they baby bird body.
  7. Next, using some of the red sugarpaste, make the hats. Shape 2 squat cones with about 8g sugarpaste each, hollowing out the bases a little to make space for the heads. Shape on to the adult heads, adding ridges with the handle of a paintbrush to give them more of a lifelike appearance. Next, make and attach a hat for the baby bird, using about 5g red sugarpaste.
  8. Using some of the white sugarpaste, make bands for the bases of the hats and stick on. Mark with a knife, if you like, to add texture. To make the pompoms, shape small white balls and stick on to the tops of the hats using a little edible glue if needed.
  9. Using remaining white sugarpaste, roll out thin ovals and stick to the birds' chests and sides, smoothing out the edges. Use the remaining red sugarpaste to make smaller red ovals to stick on to centres of the white chests, again smoothing the edges.
  10. Finally, shape 6 wings using the remaining brown sugarpaste; 4 larger and 2 smaller. Stick to the sides of the birds, using edible glue if needed. Finally shape tiny beaks using the orange/yellow sugarpaste and stick to the birds' faces. Set robins aside (leave overnight on baking parchment to harden, if you have time).
  11. If you like, lightly brush your holly/ivy leaves with some green lustre and roll the berries (if made) in some red lustre. Using a little edible glue to help stick, arrange a wreath around the top (and a little down the sides) of the cake with the dried leaves. Next stick on some red berries, if made.
  12. Slice the Flake bars into shorter lengths, and lightly dust with icing sugar to resemble snowy logs. Arrange on your cake and sit the birds on top. If you like, secure a ribbon around the base of the cake and you’re good to go!

Get ahead:

Assemble up to 2 weeks ahead. Leave at cool room temperature.

GH Tip:

To measure whether your marzipan or sugarpaste is large enough to cover your cake, use a piece of string. Cut string so it’s long enough to go up one side of the cake, over the top (centrally), then down the opposite side. Lay this string on the rolled-out marzipan/sugarpaste to determine whether it’s large enough.

Slow cooker Christmas cake recipe: a deliciously moist take on the festive classic .
This slow cooker Christmas cake recipe is big on flavor – and on booziness. Best served with cream. YumSlow cookers are particularly useful for making Christmas cake, because it's much less likely your cake will burn or dry out than when making it in a cake tin in the oven. Below, we're sharing our favourite slow cooker Christmas cake recipe. As a precaution, and to make it easier to turn out, we recommend lining your slow cooker with foil before putting in the cake mix. Alternatively, use a silicone cake mould – it'll prevent the cake from sticking to the sides of your slow cooker and is safe to use.
