This is absolutely gorgeous.


What a great idea! I want to make something new for my work Christmas party. Maybe I can work up the courage to try this.


Oh my! I literally gasped when I scrolled down and the first picture came into view! Stunning!! Love love love those ruffles! And the inside is pretty darn spectacular, too. ;-)

You are one talented lady!!


Oh. My. Goodness. This is amazing. As if the outside wasn't beautiful enough.... I've never seen anything like the inside. You've outdone yourself. Gorgeous!


Martha pretty much rocks everythign she does...this is no exception! ABSOLUTE showstopper!

I loved the trees then I saw the inside - fabulous!!


THAT'S IT! You need to apply for membership in Mensa for figuring out how to get the ornament shape in your cake. GENIUS!


Amazing. Well done. I love it.


amazing cake!


LOVE this! This is probably my favorite cake you've made so far. I think it'd be too scary to attempt this on my own so thank you for allowing me to live vicariously through you! ha ha Merry Christmas!


Wow...I think you've done gone and outdone yourself with this one, which I never thought would be possible!! Very amazing!


Wow! Those ruffles are beautiful, and I love the trees! (And the ornament. Your 'inside the cake' ideas are always amazing.)


My favorite of all you have ever done! PERFECT!!!!!


Stunning! You pulled off the technique beautifully!


You are AMAZING! I've always loved that cake too! Yours is perfect-- I loooove it! Will definitely be featuring it on my tumblr! I will prob put it on my main blog too when i do favorites christmas post! This has got to be my all time favorite of yours. Ahhhhh! Loooooove it! I could never tell
You enough how fabulous you are!

I saw the comment that someone left that said she literally "gasped" when she scrolled down through the pictures. I can totally relate because I did the exact same thing!!! You've out done yourself with this one Amanda (and I didn't think that was possible). You AMAZE me with your talent and creativity!!!!!


Amanda? You are just too much! And I mean that in the nicest way possible. :)

Jackie (BakingLand)

I love this cake! You do such an amazing job! The ruffles are perfect and the tree ruffles are perfect!

Jessica @ How Sweet

Incredible! That is just beautiful.

Stephanie @ The Brunette Foodie

This is absolutely beautiful! Icing baked goods is by far my worst kitchen skill, so when I saw this picture at the top of your post I panicked. However, I think you are right that it would be super forgiving.

I may need to try this!


Wow. Just wow. That's beautiful and amazing and so totally impressive!


That is just so cool. You are a very awesome and creative person! God surely blessed you with a wonderful talent!!


Amanda, i am truly speechless . . . and that is pretty hard to do . . . jaw-dropping beautiful!


WOW!!! Outstanding.

Ryan @ Ryan's Baking Blog

Un-freaking-believably beautiful. You are an inspiration.

Amanda, this cake is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I'm seriously in awe!

Janelle King

Can You do a tutorial on how to do the ornament shape in your cake. This is a masterpiece!


I would give anything to be as good as you!
That is one awesome cake!!!

megan @ whatmegansmaking

Oh my gosh this is amazing. I have no idea how you did those ruffles, let alone a ruffle design, let alone the inside of the cake! you are truly talented. Love it!


seriously amazing....wow, you really know your stuff!!!


Wow. Here I am, cannot even bake a box of cupcakes! This is more than baking. This is design and engineering. I'm not often drawn to cakes, but this is really really amazing, cool, and every other word in between. So impressive.


Wow!! I love this and that ruffled icing is gorgeous. Very inspirational work!


you amaze me girl!!!!........you know I'm in serious LOVE!....just stunning!

Amy @ Living Locurto

NO WAY! That is so wonderful!!! I'm in awe.


Your Christmas Cake is gorgeous!

How did you get the ornament inside? Well, I mean to say is how did you get the coloring like that for the ornament? I would love to make this, but that bit ... I haven't a clue.
