You know - we don't really get over excited about Christmas in this house but we always do the foodie stuff and presents of course. Haven't put the Christmas tree up yet but I have ordered the meat. Tonight we have Bruce and Kaz, Jarrad, Pete and Sarah coming for a bbq and I have made a trial run cassata - Haven't made my famous cassata for a few years but I was busily telling Kaz that mine was better than Il Pastos so I said I would add it to the Christmas pud scene along with the pavlova and hand made icecream.
This is the top layer - well it will be the bottom layer when I turn it out. Quite an involved process but it will taste okay for sure.
A piece I have been working on
with something to be part of it
messed up a bit but as soon as I have finished I will post it. It has to end up being 12 x 12 which is hard for me as I never measure anything.
