Last night I added ribbons and bows to the presents I made in class this week, and I painted the trimmings today. I didn't end up putting bows on all of them as they were quite fiddly, and I'm running out of time to get my models done, so I decided to just spend one night on it and whatever I got done was a bonus. Later on I actually thought of a good reason to not have bows on all of them... they would get in the way if I need to stack the presents on the cake.
I also made Santa's sack today. I started with a ball of brown paste, then pinched and stretched it out at the top. Last project was to make a few little candy canes by twisting together thin sausages of red and white paste. That's pretty much it for the modelling! I was going to make some toys to sit in amongst the presents, but when I did a quick mock-up of the cake to measure up and work out what size board I need, I realised that there wouldn't even be room for them in the sleigh! It's actually going to be quite a small cake, just heavily decorated with models.
