Yesterday I decorated my Christmas tree and iced the cake that kethry made me. I would have blogged about it then, but to be honest that video put me in a pretty bad mood for the rest of the day.

The tree is a new, 6ft artificial from B+Q (and not bad for £14.99). The old 4ft one will be going on freecycle. Rather annoyingly I was planning on two sets of 100 lights – my old ones and my new LED ones – but the old ones have decided to go on the blink. So the tree isn’t quite as bright as I’d hoped, but still looks nice :)

After that I set to work icing the cake. I’d marzipanned it a couple of days before to give it time to dry out. I simply used premade fondant icing from Tescos, rolled it out and then decorated it with small stars and some silver balls. For a first try I think it looks rather good :)
