What better way to celebrate the final Christmas card being made, written & sealed than with a humongous cake!
Now there's a story in itself...brace yourselves. Favourite daughter, who is cateringly-challenged like her mother, asked this afternoon if she could make meringue biscuits. At this moment the usual 'alarm bells of fear' failed to work. Somehow (insanely) I said 'go for it'...clearly my brain had not defrosted from standing on the freezing touch-line of my son's football match ealier in the day.
A simple recipe resulted in:-
Favourite son splattered with meringue mix,
Favourite daughter requiring a complete change of clothes following a struggle with a food mixer (on high speed) and a giant box of icing sugar,
A vacuum cleaner to clear the air of the icing sugar smog,
EVERYTHING in the kitchen needing wiping down and...
A small fire!
There's never a dull moment in our house.
