daily musings of a vintage addict * I am totally obsessed with all things vintage * trying to keep up with my past...and sometimes ordinary everyday life

My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

ms*robyn's vintage style Christmas

my first cake is in the oven, smelling absolutely delish ~and as promised here is the recipe - Ms*robyn's Christmas cake

For my cakes, I use a 20cm. square cake tin - I have used a 23cm round tin but as I cut the cakes into quarters the square works better for me. I line the tin with three layers of greaseproof paper, greased between each layer and bringing the paper about 5cm above the top of the tin.

so before beginning, just make sure you have the correct sized tin & all ingredients - nothing worse than getting half way through and realizing you have something missing.......
tomorrow, I will be off to buy the next lot of fruit to soak * ya know, I have been making this cake for about 22 years or more...so I guess it is really a true tradition now !!!!
