The Festive Fairy Arrived....


Following my earlier post... I wished real hard and she turned up and sprinkled her magic dust all over me. Giving me enough energy to make a gingerbread castle (inspired by the wonderful Tanna) and some biscuits, and the thing I'd been planning on making all December - a spiced igloo cake (I forgot the fruit).


I want to thank the wonderful Kelly-Jane of Cooking the Books for getting hold of and sending me the Christmas edition of Martha Stewart Living Magazine. I saw an advert for it and was drawn in by the gingerbread towns on the front cover. I couldn't get hold of it but Kelly-Jane did. She is one of the nicest bloggers you'll ever 'meet'. Thanks Kelly-Jane, you're a sweetheart!

Merry Christmas one and all...

Amanda, your igloo won me over. The polar bears are adorable and love that sign. Your gingerbread castle is also fantastic! I have never made a house, castle or igloo before, it must have been fantastic to see how great they turned out.
