My Christmas Cake  by beryl

My Christmas Cake

Job accomplished , the cake made , coated with a layer of marzipan and finally iced and decorated . This year ,I have used fondant icing rather the more traditional royal icing , which I prefer , but my arms and back will not allow the manipulation of applying and piping of the royal icing . I always make a square cake at Christmas as it is so much easier to cut successfully ! Two of my friends and neighbours will be on their own on Christmas day - So in the afternoon I intend to pop over to both houses ( observing safe distancing ) with a plate each with a piece of my Christmas Cake , a couple of my mince pies and a piece of my Victoria sponge cake . I know they will appreciate the small gesture .Jean N will be 91 in February and Jean H has just had her 86th birthday .
What a lovely thought, Im sure your neighbours will appreciate it! Lovely cake too, and so nice to share it.

That’s sad that they will be on their own....they will be so glad to see you Beryl & very happy to receive some of your beautiful baking. I actually like fondant icing better...I know it’s rather sweet but I like that...not that I eat Christmas cake but if I did!

A lovely cake Beryl, I too would have trouble flat icing now with my arms. I did do it for 21 years and loved it but had to retire from doing it because it gave me carpel tunnel too!!
