cakes and baubles
Yesterday christmas officially arrived in our house. Jane came to pick me up from work and I had to sit side-saddle with the christmas tree all the way home. The evening was spent drinking brandy, decorating said tree and present wrapping. There was also a lot of "it didn't seem that big next to all the others" talk.
I also made a christmas cake. Not one of those that take months and requires skill and patients. It was essential a boil and bake but being a Nigella it tastes fantastic. Whilst this was boiling and baking Jane artfully rolled out icing and put the finishing touches on her cake. You can never have too many cakes in our house!
