The story of the Christmas Cake

Here is  the  story  of  a  Christmas cake

A real home made bobbydazzler

Not  a shop bought fake.



The ingredients were  all of  the best

The fruit ,peel and  brandy were mixed

Then  left over night  to  rest.


A week later  when  the cake  had been feed  with brandy

It’s beautiful  top of  mixed  nuts had  been glazed.

It was marzipaned  and  almost  ready  for icing , so  we kept it handy.

We just had  to wait for one or two days.15540673_1130772950376287_8119009468886057626_o

Finally  the great  day arrived

The icing was  made  and  carefully  applied

Little  decorations  that  we have had  for years

The cake  looks  so lovely  I  could easily  shed  tears.15626054_1130772720376310_4483713958418508231_o

None  of  patterns  on  the  icing  royal

Nor  any  of  the  fine  cooking  was  done  by  me

But  by  my  fine  hubby.

I am very  proud to  see  the  results of  his  toil!

    Far better than my recent two attempts, Willow. I love that the top is not iced. A slice with a nice of cup of tea sounds a real Christmas treat.
