I marzipan’d (is that a word?) and iced the vegan cake. Home made marzipan by default has egg in it, but the shop bought stuff doesn’t and neither does ready to roll white icing (which is good because of course the traditional royal icing has egg whites in it).
I had been going to collect some pinecones and berries from the garden and spray them gold, but rapidly running out of time so had to resort to an artificial spray from Amazon – looks quite nice I think though.
This evening I have been making the plums and brambles from the garden which I picked this autumn into preserves for some extra Christmas presents (and also to clear the freezer out a bit).
