No respite from the Arctic chill here. Here's a view of my road in the snow:
I made a cake, and it also looked snow-topped. Ds was still at school today, so I could do my preferred understated icing!
This is yet another Nigella recipe - the snow-topped spice cake from How to be a domestic goddess. I make this every year, instead of a traditional christmas cake. My dad makes me one of those, so this is a good contrast.
In between making and icing the cake, I also made mince pies.
I've not finished with the christmas cookery yet, as there are three packets of cranberries in my fridge, and not all of them are needed for the sauce.
