2 More Sleeps!!

Only 2 more sleeps to go....today I am going to make 2 festive cakes....I wouldn't say they were Christmas cakes...not like this one anyway.
But I suppose as we have them at Christmas???? I make the old favourite "crushed pineapple" fruitcake as my family are not fond of the rich dark traditional cake. This oldie but goody seems to disappear without a crumb left so I see no need to change it.
I hope your preparations are going well in a non stressed out fashion.
Blessings Michelle xxx

No-one is keen on fruit cake in my house beside my oldest daughter & me so i just don't make them anymore or Christmas puddings. Makes me sad not to make them. Hugs,xx

Doesn't every family have their own version of what the best Christmas cake is? The pineapple one sounds delicious. I have definitely tried to reduce the stress around Christmas this year, and so far it seems to be working. I think my family would rather I was relaxed than stressing over the perfect Christmas. X

I love a traditional Fruit cake - and pudding - but as we have a small celebration and most don't like them I don't make them...though I still have my grandmothers recipes incase I feel the urge...but so far we have been given 1 cake and 3 puddings - guess we better eat some of it!!
I do like the pineapple version too
