Christmas Cake Unveiling

Ta da!
I told you it would be kitsch.


I know it isn't actually Christmas for another few days, but this is the only chance I shall have before the big day itself to post a picture of this year's cake, as promised. I have been away since Friday, and would normally decorate a cake like this on Christmas Eve, but as I'll only get back from Paris late on the 24 this year, I had to do it before I left. Since I had all of about four minutes to do so before I had to catch the train to Manchester, I will be expecting your kind forgiveness for the bad photography.

Recipe is here.

Have a delicious (x 3) Christmas everybody!

  3. haha at Mrs Humble's comment! Love the Christmas Cake Mr P! Very festive. Every year I tell myself I am going to start decorating it earlier and do a fab job of it, but every year I leave it to the last minute and end up making it simple. Merry Christmas! (Paris, you lucky guy!)

  4. I love the pink trees, I'm not normally a pink person, but those break all the rules.

    Merry Christmas!

  10. Your "puti" need some fondant diapers so they don't make a mess on your cake! Happy Christmas!

  11. Oh my gosh! Kitsch at it's finest. Kewpies seem to take their fashion styling from Donald Duck, odd that it's always for kids that characters have no pants.

  16. Is there any way to resist clicking on a photo of anatomically correct kewpie doll cake toppers? I think not!

    You, sir, are stealing away my attention from important duties.

    Or at least my pillow! gnite!
