I have usually made our christmas cake(s) in the past. I am over it. R, with more spare time than I have is making it this year, with some suggestions from me. I know a bit about making cakes. I used to do it. R has bought brandy for the cake.
In years past I recall that the brandy bought for the christmas cake was drunk before the christmas cake was made and we had to buy another bottle. Tomorrow we are jointly making the cake. R has decided it will be a no icing cake. Huh, icing is the hard part, with marzipan and royal icing. Making the cake takes some time, but is quite easy.
I'll just have the one brandy before bed. There will be plenty left for the cake. Oh dear, such a sense of deja vu.
