Cooking with Plink: Christmas Cake Part 1

Hullo and welcome!

A few weeks ago, we make Christmas Cake. Here are the ingredients!

That's lots of mixed fruit soaked overnight in brandy, flour, sugar, eggs, butter, spices, citrus zest
We used Nigella's recipe from "How to be a Domestic Goddess"

You'll also need to be good friends with some of this...

Lining the tin is terribly important.

We beat the heck out of it!
I think you're allowed to make wishes when you're stirring Christmas cake... I didn't really have time for that, cause I was licking the loose mixture off of my fingers. Yum!

There was mixture on the Makie, the floor, the ceiling... 
But I guess the one wish I had did come true... the human did all the cleaning up!

We'll be marzipanning and icing the cake next weekend. Can't wait!
