Before Christmas is completely over I had to post these pics...


A Marks and Spencers plain round fruit cake which Little made a banner to go round, I put marzipan and icing on and then we topped with Christmas candles, again from M&S. I'm just not a fruit cake maker, or eater truth be told... but the banner has been folded carefully and will be taken home and treasured by my stepdad (this was one his Christmas presents) and made me realise ever more that it's the small things which matter and not the extravagant.



Hope everyone has had a very happy Christmas.

That is the most beautiful fruit cake! There is something about a child's way with drawing that is so delightful! The candles are the perfect finishing touch.
Hope you had the merriest of Christmases, too Amanda!

It's the little things that really make the difference, Amanda - in our case, a small truffle. Just kidding (although the truffle was really good). Hoping you and the family had a great Christmas and here's to a very happy New Year.

That banner is beautiful. My cake gets divided into huge chunks among the family otherwise it would last forever! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a very happy 2009 to come.
