Christmas Cake 2012

Our 16yo daughter was busy yesterday decorating the Christmas cake for us this year.  I think the older she gets the messier she gets.  Although the older she gets the better at cleaning up after herself she is.  As you can see by the photo our daughter had a wonderful time.  We both discovered to create brown icing you use equal amounts of red, blue and yellow (yep, google).  This tradition started 5 years ago when our daughter was 11yo.  

The end product....a plum pudding.
