The fruit mince is mascerating, gingerbread is done.
The brambrack cake is next as will be the macaroons, almond crescents, Christmas biscuits and fudge.
I might take a little break with a Candy Cane Martini
To make one candy cane martini, mix:
1 1/2 ounces of vanilla vodka
1/2 ounce of peppermint schnapps
1 ounce of club soda
crushed candy canes for garnish
Dip the rim of a martini glass with water, then the crushed candy canes. Mix the vodka, schnapps, and club soda with ice in a cocktail shaker; strain into your prepared glass.
