Making my first Christmas cake. I used Kirsty Allsopp's recipe with a few tweaks... dry ginger beer instead of apple cider, lots of brandy added as well, lime zest only and now basting the top every day with more brandy. I also followed a tip I found on the internet where you spread the cake batter without the fruit into the base to prevent the burnt fruit on the top of the cake.

A day of fellowship, quiet, reading, contemplation, chat, food, tea, coffee and a fantastic fire pit dinner with Moroccan lamb and roasted veg salad; with orange syrup cake and fruit for dessert.
A day's retreat with my Bible study ladies.
