This has been a good season for cakes. I would have taken a picture of the Scotch Bun my auntie sent from Glasgow, except we ate it already. But here is the small remains of a larger chunk of gorgeous Christmas cake home baked by Dave O'Connell (tozocomic). Cake life does not get better than this. The cake is a bit rougher for wear, having been wrapped in foil and carried in my rucksack whilst cycling. But please to note the cut-out star detail on the side on the icing, just above the marzipan, a lovely touch there.
If you're in London!: Tomorrow ztoical will be visiting London from Ireland, so a few of us, including Will, will be going along for drinks at the Black Lion pub in Kilburn. I think I'm going to get there about 8:30 or so, maybe see you there!
