Holly and Christmas Cake!

It's that time of year again... time to get mixing the currents and sultanas, the butter and sugar, the flour and all the other little extras that make Christmas cake so special!

One of our Snowmen cakes from last year!
I'm not sure whether the children enjoyed eating them or
just making them the most!

Last year The Pumpkin Patch Class made tiny Christmas Cakes, baked in used (and washed!) sweetcorn tins! We lined them thoroughly, filled them with cake mixture and baked them for about an hour.
Once teased out of the tins (made easier by opening the other side of the tin)
and then iced, they made the perfect little Christmas cake to give a friend or the family for Christmas.

I think I made about forty 'sweetcorn tin' Christmas cakes
and about twenty full size cakes last year....
Oh no,... it's that time of year again!!
