Clever you eh?

I can't make cakes to save my life! Last time I made fairy cakes.....well ......lets just say you could smash a window with them!

I've no idea why I get it so wrong, the ingredients and measurements are right (I think) but it just don't happen for me!:lol:

Sure you're not doing any orders, Glynis???????:hug:

It's the cost of them as well as the making of them . . . a few Christmases ago I did a shop solely to buy the ingredients for my Chrissy cake and spent nearly 14 quid and that didn't include the booze cos I had it at home . . . :eek:

That was the last time I made one. :lol:

But I feel guilty when I hear of other people making them and my kids really want to get involved with helping to make one, I think perhaps this year I might just have another go. :rolleyes: Yours sounds lovely . :green:

I have always made cakes and I used to do a lot of fruit cakes for special birthdays - the 3D type ones. I've done a Christmas cake every year that I can remember but I can't face making one in June.:)

MMMmMMMMMmmmm, quite fancy a slice of christmas cake with me milky coffee right now!!

I made one once and it was lovely - I also made some truffles and by god they were all lovely - but I didnt have a child then and time wasnt such a luxury as it is now!!

MMM the smell of a Christams cake - I prefer the fruit to the marzipan and icing bit personally.

I made a chrismas cake a few years ago, cost me over £100 as I had to buy everything - scales, tins, bowls, spoons etc... Hubby still takes the piss out of me for making the most expensive cake.

Didn't even get round to eating it at xmas as I forgot to decorate it, so carried on feeding it the booze and we had it at easter. It was the best cake in the world.
