Reverb 10 – Dec 06 – Make

December 6 – Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?

Christmas cake, Dec 2010

I made our Christmas Cake. Technically I only finished it, because I made it way back in September (I use – and highly recommend Nigella’s recipe). It’s spent the last few months in a huge Tupperware, being fed weekly with brandy – about a quarter bottle in all – and it smells incredible. Last week I marzipanned and iced it, and used typically excessive quantities of glitter on the snowflakes, but then it is Christmas, and if you ask me, you can never have too much glitter!
