I'm working my way down the list:
- presents bought - tick
- decorations up - tick
- puddings steamed - tick
- cards written and posted - tick
- christmas cake decorated - tick
There was a lot of marzipan left when I finished decorating the cake so I decided I would make stollen. But something went wrong and instead of the light fluffy cake like dough filled with fruit and a melting marzipan centre I seem to have made a stollen brick... two of them. I made myself eat a slice for breakfast just to see if it tasted okay but wish I'd stuck to porridge! Looks like the birds are in for a treat, although I fear they might be unable to take off after eating this!
Oh well... that will teach me to go off-list.
Back on it today... wrapping presents.
