Marzipan mayhem!

Marzipan mayhem!

Talk about leave it to the last minute, I'm wondering if the marzipan I have just rolled over my Christmas cake, will have time to dry before I ice the cake this evening ... somehow I doubt it. And will the icing have time to set before our guests arrive tomorrow afternoon? That I also doubt! Ah well, such is the joy of Christmas!

Leaving it late ... icing tonight! (Very simply, I might add!)

With all these Christmas preparations dominating my time, I almost left it too late tell you about Ellen's special Christmas parade - now that would have been a crying shame! Ellen kindly invited her bear and doll artist friends to join her Christmas parade by sharing a picture of one of their favourite creations. If you would like to watch the parade, please visit Ellen's blog today by clicking the logo below:


  1. Do I spy a Laura Ashley cake stand? Gorgeous! Cake looks rather yummy, even in its un-iced nakedness.

    Have a lovely Christmas Paula.

    Hugs, Sarah x

  2. Merry Christmas Paula.
    I hope you and your family will have a wonderful Holiday.
    Your cake looke yummie :o)
    Hugs, Tina

  3. I'm sure the cake will be just fine! It looks good enough to eat already!

    I enjoyed the visit to the online bear parade, thank you for the link.

    Have a happy Christmas, Paula!

    Best wishes, Lynda

  4. A very merry Christmas to you and your family Paula!
    That cake looks yummy indeed...I too am baking cakes, even though I said I would not. I find it wonderfully relaxing to bake cakes, but I doubt if mine will look as good as yours!

    Thanks for your link to the parade! Billy Buttons looked a million dollars in it!

  5. Why do we always try to do too much? Even when there is nothing to do I make work for me it seems.... sigh...

    have a great Christmas Paula... continued success in the new year...

  6. Merry Christmas Paula to you and your family.
    Your cake looks delicous.

    I enjoyed the Bear parade and Billy Buttons looks so cute.


  7. Merry Christmas, Paula! Hope your cake was ready when your guests arrived! .. Sooo inviting and yummy!

  9. I wonder how the icing and cake turned out? OK I hope? Hope you had a good Christmas anyway Paula. - Dave

  10. Oh, I'm very touched! Thank you all so much for your Christmas wishes, how kind of you! Here's to a wondeful 2009 full of warmth for everyone x
