First Christmas Cake

Alex made his very first Christmas cake – and how duly proud he is too. Matron carefully removed the decorations and packaged it in a tin so it safely travelled home, no damages to report. He asked if I remembered making my first cake and also how difficult it was.

Yes, at a similar age I do remember making the same cake at school; an endless list of ingredients to weigh then mixing to do but mid way through the instructions we were told to stop and make a wish... I wonder if Alex did this too? I can't wait to cut into this cake on Christmas Day!
