In The Kitchen


Twelfth Night has been and the Christmas decorations put away, but I thought that I would share a couple of photographs of my Christmas baking with you.  My Christmas cake came out really well and I iced it a couple of days before Christmas Eve, when we had our first taste: it was absolutely delicious!


I also baked my Spruced-Up Vanilla Cake (Nigella's Christmas recipe).  It looked so festive with its icing sugar dusting - like fresh snowfall on the alps.  This is such a large cake that I sliced it up and put most of it in the freezer, to enjoy at a later date.  Although a relatively plain cake, it is perfect with a cup of tea.  Anyone care for a slice?

Both cakes look wonderful, Marie and I certainly would love to share a slice of either of them with you:)

Actually, yes please, both cakes look yummy but how could you bear to slice them when they look so beautiful? x

Is there a slice and cup left?! As usual, I'm late to the party... LOL! Beautiful and delicious baking, Marie! Since we didn't get to have our Christmas Cake at Christmas this past, I'm going to try making some mini Christmas cakes in a muffin tin after a recipe I came across and make it our Valentine treat. What can I say, better luck next Christmas. ;) ((HUGS))

Tracy - there is actually some Christmas cake left. I've been trying to make it last and not eat it all within a few days of Christmas. You are most welcome to a slice. I'll put the kettle on. Marie x
