Days 358 to 360

Our 365 Christmas :-

Day 358 of 365
I spent most of Christmas Eve decorating this cake!  Next year I am only making one Christmas cake!
Working from the bottom to the top, the cakes are Delia's Classic Christmas Fruitcake, Nigella's Chocolate Fruitcake, Pj's Lemon & Ginger Fruitcake and a Giant Sponge Cake Pop for the head, made with the Brandy-soaked offcuts from the Battenburg Cake I recently baked.  The hat is a chocolate covered marshmallow with a biscuit brim.
Day 359 of 365
Our 2013 Christmas photo.  Each year we take a family photo at Christmas.  Sometimes my parents are here with us, but this year we are visiting them at a later date.  We had a fun day at home, just the four of us, with lots of laughter.
Day 360 of 365
Boxing Day we got out my "vintage" Monopoly.  Fay said that her flatmates won't play with her as she is unbeaten - game on!  Of course she wiped the floor with us! :)
So that was our 365 Christmas.  Only 5 more photos to go until I have completed my challenge.
Best wishes, Pj x
