Ive been baking

This is the third Christmas cake, a bottle of rum does three cakes which John thinks is expensive but I dont. Only 2 more cakes to make and then more biscuits. The second photo, well there were more biscuits but they have been eaten. The third photo was a new recipe, not sure if I will make them again but so far the jury is out on them. They were a pain to do individually so I ended up putting them in to a slice tin.
Back to making the usual biscuits next week, biscotti and something savory.
Wet and humid today, we had about 4 mm until 9 am but a bit since then. I am so glad as the garden needs every bit it can get.
In for a coffee with a friend this afternoon, very pleasant, now to feed the dogs and chooks and organise dinner.
I need to clean the house over the week end and then put up the Christmas decorations, I usually leave it until the week before Christmas but as we leave on the 18th for kangaroo Island and our friend from Queensland comes on the 16th I had better get them done sooner rather than later, then find the ones I take with us over to the Island.
Beginning to feel as if things are coming together.

Yummy! Mmmmm. Well, if a bottle of rum makes three cakes, and there's only two more cakes in the plan, gee, I wonder what happens to that other 1/3 bottle of rum? lol
Happy Holidays.

The cake looks yummy. The thing about making your own is that you can put in the bits that you like to eat. I hate citron peel so the benefit of making my own is that I leave that out of it.
