Advent calender blog hop

Hi every one :) its that time of the year ... yes you guessed it Advent Calender Blog Hop hosted and organised by the wonderful Jo at http://serendipitousstitching.blogspot.co.uk/........ 
This year we have to write a wee bit about food ... OHHHHH dear  ..lol I bet you can't guess which is my favourite food at Christmas ?????
Yup its the good old Christmas Cake with lots of fruit and icing and not to mention the touch of sherry in the recipe ..... part of one of my five a day you know eheheheheh ....... Since I have been married ( 25 years as of yesterday) my wonderful MIL (the birthday girl from the other month) has made us a round cake and a loaf of Christmas Cake every year .... I provide the fruit and she does the baking ;0 a good combination ...lol and then I get to play with the icing and make it look pretty :)
