Christmas Cake

Christmas cake decoration.  
Today to avoid the frequent hail showers i decided it was the time to decorate the Christmas cake. When i say decorate the cake i mean simply decorate! I didn't actually make the cake myself! i know that's cheating, however my lovely mum made the cake back in November and I've been keeping it moist by coating it in Disaronno each week.

After creating a complete mess in the kitchen, including spilling food colouring everywhere and getting edible glitter spray everywhere i don't think the cake turned out too bad!

It's not perfect, it's lumpy and bumpy, and my polar bear is a little wonky, but it's the effort that counts and i look forward to eating some cake next week. 

Happy Christmas

    Your last few posts mention Cornwall a lot. Are you Cornish? My Dad was from Scilly, and I spent much of my youth in the Penzance / St.Ives area.
    Love your Polar Bear BTW. He has "character"!
