Pastillage Christmas Box

Last week I was able to show some of my creative decorating talents when we made pastillage boxes, filled with marzipan fruits.
I decided to give my box a fun Christmas theme by making an elevated snowflake (by using stringwork) on top of the box with holly around the sides. Pastillage is an edible sugar dough that dries hard. we made the pieces for the box then we 'glued' them together with royal icing. The fruits are hand shaped and them airbrushed and hand painted. I made a potato, beet, cabbage, pea, hot pepper, green pepper, peach, pear, walnut, and blueberries. The beautiful creation was raffled off at our church's Advent Tea. ENJOY.
