Cake Tin, Cake and Mincepies

18 Dec

I bought a new Christmas cake tin last Christmas and didn’t get to use it. Today I have made a Heligan Pineapple Cake in the tin and decorated it in a bright jolly fashion. You can find the recipe for this delicious squishy fruit cake here. .

Then I made mince pies. The angels look more like displaced ghosts but they taste good (home-made mincemeat and very short pastry.)

All this today, because, hopefully, given the Covid situation, the London family will arrive tomorrow ย for a few days prior to Christmas. We are making tomorrow our Christmas Day dinner and present exchange day. I may not have time to post. Keep your fingers crossed, Dear Reader, that their PCR tests will all be negative and that they will be able to come…………


For all those very dear readers who were touched by my post yesterday, I have found another rendition of Joe Hill. Do listen. It gave me the shivers. Much love….
