Christmas cake is in the oven!

Did you see my post yesterday? Lookie here if you didn't. The kids helped me to bake our Christmas cake today. I set out the ingredients... 



DS10 measured them and put them in a large bowl for DD8 to mix...




They carried the bowl through to DH (who, poor thing, is on a 24hr Ikea furniture building spree), so that he could - as tradition dictates - give the mixture a stir and make a wish... He played along nicely, even though he thinks it's a load of baloney :)

And - just so we could really get into the seasonal mood - we listened to a "Now Christmas" CD while we measured, mixed and stirred. I just have to hear the first bars of "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses and I'm looking out the window for snowflakes! ;D



Into the oven went the cake...



and now - for me - it's officially the Season to be Jolly. Autumn is over, roll on Winter, yay! :D

We're making our Christmas cakes on Halloween! I'm looking forward to seeing how they turn out. And, of course, tasting them at Christmas. Thanks for the recipe!
