Today I decorated the first Christmas cake I have ever made. Previously my sister who has professional qualifications tended to decorate our family cake. This year though Christmas is at my house so I thought I'd give it a try,even though I don't even like to eat fruit cake. Came out Ok didn't it?
Um well,no. That cake is a previous creation of Working Mum on the Verge , my old school friend who ought to enter The Great British Bake Off. But she was during my decorating session, as she was back then, my inspiration.
But not my teacher. This, with no instruction whatsoever ( and little more effort) is my cake.
I tell you, there are times when there is no point competing.
Bumps and lumps are the in thing this year,did you not know?
Besides, there's only my Dad bothered about the cake and he'd only poke his good eye out on those snowflakes....
