The holly and mistletoe cake is made or the rich fruit mixture, coated with almond paste, iced with royal and boiled icing, and decorated with holly and mistletoe cut out of coloured almond paste. The holly berries should be coloured with carmine; the mistletoe berries left the natural colour. The holly and mistletoe leaves can be coloured green with green vegetable colouring. To keep the berries in place use a speck of icing.
