christmas cakes

6 cakes baked , 5 wrapped and ready to go to family and friends.nobody in our family likes marzipan and icing, it ends up in the bin, so for years now Ive used a decoration instead. These sugar decorations were made by my friend Ruby, a sugar artist who's now retired and does this as a hobby .She's so talented.
I made the crochet tablecloth in my early twenties for my Grandmother and when she passed on it was returned to me.I used it to take this photo, its now back in my kist.
