I was thinking of you when I was decorating these fruitcakes as I remembered the nice thread we had with bughut. The recipes in that thread are great, the same recipe I used to make mine. We can truly say they were made with love.
Happy cooking Ishbel.
I do miss Bughut! She's an Englishwoman, married to a Scot and living in Scotland. I have finally finished decorating mine, and they go out to my friends and family tomorow.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
I miss her to as she used to share so many dishes with me. Glad to hear your cakes are done. All the best to you Ishbel. My anniversary is on the 25th.....I will be sleeping in for the first . I finally managed to get the day off !
Thank you sugarmuffin for the nice compliment. They are sprayed with brandy every 7 days for 2 1/2 months then coated in icing sugar then wrapped in cheesecloth, placed in a cool dark place to mature. They are decorated only when ordered. .
