    I agree! How did you do the top, or is that the design in your bundt pan? Whatever, it looks amazingly Christmasy!

    Awww, thanks Donna. Wish I could send you a slice.

    Bonnie, I took one of those little paper doilies that you can buy at the $ stores and placed it on top of the cake. Then I sifted powdered sugar over it. Removed the doily and voila! Lacey design.

    Well, you are a clever lady, aren't you? I didn't know about that trick, but I will remember it! Thanks, Candy! (still loving your rice! LOL!)

    Bonnie, seems I read about "using a paper doily" trick quite a while ago but don't remember where. It was to be used on a flat pan cake but I figured why not try it on a bundt and see what happens. Well that's what happened. I was pleased with the appearance. Glad you liked it too.
