Add a bit of sugar and beat this until the you can pull peaks that don’t fall back. Divide this into two portions and colour them red and green. Stir not completely, so you will have a marble effect.

Cut the two cakes both once and stack all four layers on top of each other with a layer of buttercream in between. Also cover the outside of the cake with the cream and place in the fridge to stiffen.
Fill a decorating bag with tip #2 and a bit of white buttercream and decorate the gingerbread cookies.
Colour the remaining buttercream with the red colouring and place this a decorating bag. Take a brush and paint some green paint on top of the macaron. Fill one part of the macaron with the cream and place the other one on top. Place them in the fridge until you need them.
Knead 600 grams of fondant well, roll it out on with magic roll-out powder covered work surface and use it to cover the cake. Remove the remaining parts. Roll out the remaining fondant and cut out different sizes of snowflakes.
