Mislabel on the original photo intake. I thought it to be a pizza!

Forget the Christmas cake stuff and just give me a pizza or lasangua.

I wouldn't know where to start to make Christmas cake but I make a wicked lasagne with fresh basil from the garden. However, I always burn pizza! :o(

I am finally figuring this site out.

OK my UK friends, I was raised in Canuck Land and I don't ever recall cheese with fruit cake!!? I love cheddar cheese on my apple pie to which I am always teased here! But cheese with fruit cake......hmmmm....

Just had to have another look at your cake........and yes it would be nice with a strong piece of (take the roof off your mouth) cheddar.

19 Dec, 2008

 

Yes to take another look wouldn't do any damage....... Mmmmmm yes I would love to have another piece of this with a cup of tea as I am on to the GOY Site right now...:-)

Well it's all but gone now... and how we've enjoyed it. Merry Christmas everyone.

Oh YUM!!!! I made 1 whole Christmas Cake and 4 tiny ones to give away. I have a delicious, easy to make recipe if anyone is interested. Just let me know - I'm on vacation in the desert with not much to do so I bake and give away plates of it to friends and neighbors. The looks and thanks is all that is necessary.
Enjoy your cake with rum - I baste mine 5-6 times with brandy - I find I like brandy better than rum on fruitcake.
Merry Christmas from Arizona. Enjoy celebrating the birth of our Savior.
