I decided that Today was The Day to cut into the Christmas cake...
Who cares if the icing turned out
a garing shade of turquoise a bit darker than it was supposed to?
|Yikes, a little smidgen of those colouring pastes really does go a long way...! ;D|
Who cares that the white icing got bits of cake crumbs mixed in to it?
Who cares that the blue icicles wouldn't stand up straight, as I had planned, or stick on to the sides of the cake?
It looks pretty good from a distance. Or by candlelight... ;D
And I had an 'aha' moment. I don't need to wait until we have special guests coming in order to cut it. I can take a slice (or two) today. And linger over the very best part - the thick layers of marcipan and white icing! Yum! ;D
Have a terrific Tuesday! :)
PS: It's not too late to make your own Christmas cake. The recipe we use is right here - and it can be made one day before it's eaten :)
