Christmas Cake!

Jackson and I have spent the morning making our Christmas Cake! I've never bothered making one before but this year I really want Christmas to be back to basics - all about the twinkly lights, the tree, good home cooked food and being with the family. As such I'm starting early making sure the cupboards are stocked with all the good stuff.

Jackson adored helping stir the ingredients and licking the spoon! The house is a flour dusted mess but smells gorgeous!

I'm looking forward to feeding it (and myself) liberally with brandy from now until Christmas. Ho ho ho, there's no turning back now!

{this is how I am hoping it will look!}
If you are interested, it is the Delia Smith recipe which you can find here

Christmas is not too far away and most us started with cake mixing for the yummiest Christmas cake recipe. Christmas cake can be anyone such as fruit cake, spongy, moist, glazed etc. The smell of the baking will be tasty and make us to have the cake as soon as possible. The most important part of the cake and the last step is decorating cake. It is not so tough or so easy but if we follow some tips then we can decorate it neatly and attractively. Here is a site which gives us Christmas cake decorating pictures, Ideas for decorating a christmas cake, traditional Christmas cake recipes and many more .

I personally think your cake looks better than the one in the picture. I don't like it when the cake is too dark. Yours looks yummy! nom nom nom!
