Christmas Cake

I know, I know…your probably thinking…Really you made Christmas cake??? Most of the population turns their noses up at this Christmas traditional treat, but there are some of us out there who enjoy it.  Now don’t get me wrong, it is not one of those things that I love but a little at Christmas is nice and will do me until next year.

This was my first time making Christmas cake and I was surprised how easy it was.  My Mom and I got together with a very good friend and we made an evening out of it.  So even if the cake was a flop we had a fantastic time doing it!

This one you will only get to see the photos as I do not have the recipe
