It's beginning to taste a lot like Christmas


Today the family got together in the kitchen to decorate our Christmas Cake, which Huffle has been lovingly feeding for a month now.

Small made a snowman and some presents. Smallest made a sledge for the presents and a Christmas Tree. I made a couple of snowmen, snowballs, presents and a reindeer. Huffle worked hard on rolling out the marzipan and Moo made the Royal Icing. 3 egg whites whisked, adding 1.5lbs icing sugar till peaks (couldn't find the glycerin).


The icing started to fall off the cake taking a few of the presents with it, but overall it looked good. We out it in the fridge for an hour and then boxed it up.
