Suddenly awoke to the fact that it was time to do grown up things - so I went out and bought these ingredients
to make - yes, you've guessed it, my VERY FIRST Chritmas cake.
Am I the only person at this ripe old age never to have attempted anything Christmas? No mince pies, not even a Christmas pud has crossed my culinary path . . . . TIL NOW.
So I am going to make The Perfect Christmas Cake.
Today I have soaked all the fruit in whisky.
Tomorrow the world.
