The Colours of Christmas.

The Illawarra Flame tree.

Stirring Weekend.

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.
