Popped the retro Christmas apron on and started baking the first couple of Christmas cakes for the festive season.
It's rare that I go through the bottle shop before midday, but I did today!! Feels like Christmas when you are purchasing alcohol (sherry in todays case) for baking before lunch.
The boys love giving home made fruit cakes and the like to our neighbours and good friends. All cellophaned up with the Christmas ribbon and cute tag always looks good.
At Christmas time I think we all make allowances with butter and cream. Looking at the butter bubbling away i know it's a little like the kids can sometimes be ....'naughty but nice'.
Mmmm anyone doing fat free yummy things for Christmas or going the whole full cream indulgent way with all the trimmings?
