Got my act together just in time! Tree up, mince pies made.
Snow topped spice cake in accordance with annual tradition:
This year with extra gold pearls!
And new in 2012, certosino (Italian-style fruit cake):
Made from a recipe in How to be a domestic goddess. I love the bejewelled look of it; hope it tastes equally good.
Merry Christmas to all my readers. See you on the other side of the festivities!
