Actually, she was a bit more relaxed this year, maybe because Amy and Thomas don't make as much mess as they used to. Along with her main job of 'instructing' she was also in charge of lining the cake tin.
She's very camera shy though and didn't want to be on the blog.
Amy's job was to weigh all the dry ingredients.
And Thomas was in charge of cracking the eggs, which is the point where Mum always goes a bit wobbly haha.
Then it was into the oven at 140C for 41/2 hours.
And this is end product which smells delicious. I just need to add whisky to it every week and it'll get decorated a couple of days before Christmas.
And finally, I can't leave the blog today without acknowledging what happened in Paris last night. It must be heartbreaking for all those families who have lost loved ones. Such a senseless waste of life.
