MERRY CHRISTMAS GARDEN BLOGGERS EVERYWHERE

We may not have a white Christmas in Texas but the snowy scene here is part of our traditional English Christmas celebration. On Christmas day we will cut into our Christmas cake. Baked from a recipe in Mrs Beeton's Cookery book, and covered with marzipan and royal icing. The British never make jokes about fruit cake. We love every crumb!
Merry Christmas, gardening friends.

  2. Lovely cake, I must confess I never make one but I do make Christmas puddings every year, slaving over a hot steamer! Please feel free to pop back and share our snowy weather - it's going to be -10C tonight! Have a good Christmas.

  9. Have been catching up on your posts. The cake is delightful looking. I have a number of fruit cake cookbooks and recipes but have given up trying to convince others to try it! Instead I make a rich, dense triple gingerbread for Christmas which is a nice substitute.
