Now that the wedding season has finally come to a close, it is time to start focusing on Christmas cakes, puddings and a whole host of other delicious edible Christmas goodies, that I also love making.

As any good baker is aware, a good Christmas cake needs to be made well in advance to allow ample time to ‘feed’ with brandy and allow the cake time to mature. Or get gradually sozzled!!

All our cakes are currently getting wonderfully tipsy and it will soon be time to start to cover them with marzipan, sugarpaste and complete their festive decoration. Meanwhile we have decorated a couple of cute ‘dummie’ show cakes and wanted to share these festive fellows with you:-
