Looks ok. All wrapped up in a tin now waiting for a bit of alcohol and a layer of marzipan and icing.
It was a little strange making a christmas cake as my Dad always used to make the christmas cakes for all our family so I gave the cake an extra stir for him and actually thought abou him whilst I was making it - think he would have sniffed a bit at the thought of me buying a 'kit' though.
As well as making the cake yesterday I also did a little dotty angel make. I selected a few jars from out of my recycle bin, scrubbed them and then wrapped them in lace and doilies. Few stitches to hold the lace in place and a hand stiched sentiment. A little red and white bakers twine bow and all placed on a little old book rack. I am going to attach some greenery when I get around to getting some and a tea light in the bottom Bob's your Uncle as they say.
