Festive Baking Delights Have Begun...


Oh, the delightful smells of festive baking have begun in our home once again, starting with our traditional Christmas fruit cake which is always baked around this time of year in order for it to be well 'ripened' by Christmas...


How exciting to beat together the eggs and brown sugar and gently stir in the wonderful spices: cloves, cinnamon and mace and the fruit mix to create a beautiful Christmas cake, which will mature until a few days before Christmas when we will decorate it especially for the special occasion whilst singing along to cheerful carols of the season... 



Have you made your Christmas fruit cake yet?  Are you planning to decorate it in any particular way this year?  {Do see my post from last year for some beautiful ideas here...}



And if you haven’t made yours yet or you are seeking out a new recipe to try, do stay tuned for ours which I will be sharing with you all tomorrow! 


~ Sweet blessings on your day dear readers ~

I'm not a great fan of fruitcakes, but that one looks good!

I have never made fruit cake before, and had no idea that it needed to be made so far in advance! It sounds like a wonderful tradition. I love Christmas baking.
