As you may or may not know in order to have a super tasty yum Christmas cake when the festive season arrives you have to put in the ground work and think ahead.
It's around now that you have to start thinking about getting the cake baked. You then have to nurture it and feed it sherry (or another alcohol of your choice) until it's time to dress it in marzipan and icing and make it look fancy.
I kept it simple with the decoration last year, so this year i want it to be brighter and even more Christmassy!
(did you spot the gingerbread house in the last photo.......... more about that nearer the time...).
