Smells Like Christmas

Today I have been baking up a storm and the smell of fruit cakes has permeated the house. I haven't always been a devotee of the old-fashioned Christmas cake. However, when the house is full of people wandering backwards and forwards to the beach, it makes the perfect satisfying between-meal snack. This year, a number of my family are joining us for Christmas so one or two extra Christmas cakes will not go astray (the square one is for a friend):

And I promise that I won't give up my day job to become a food stylist. (Whoops, I forgot I don't have a day job anymore...)

I'm a great fan of cakes especially Christmas Cakes. So I for one, don't mind you becoming a food stylist. I recently found that there's a day celebrated as 'Cake Appreciation Day' on Nov 1.Also, finding unique trivia about cakes is a pastime hobby.
