Merry Xmas and a polar bear cake

Polar bear Christmas cake


I have a huge blogging backlog, but thanks to the flu have got a bit behind on putting things up here. But in 2009 you can look forward to a review of Pearl restaurant and bar, a luscious Thai duck and green been curry, the bf attempting a credit crunching meal for two for 10 pounds and a write up of my forthcoming New Year trip to Istanbul.

In the mean time, feast your eyes on my not-too-artistic polar bear Christmas cake. The cake was a gift but it was the first time I had attempted marzipanning, royal icing or indeed fashioning polar bears out of sugar paste. The bf thinks the one on the right looks more like a mouse!

Merry Christmas and here's to 2009!

It looks fine to me, Alex - just like real snow drifts. If you are going to Istanbul for New Year, you absolutely must eat here at the city's best new restaurant. Hope you had a great Xmas and have a very Happy New Year.

Aw, hope you're feeling better soon! Your cake looks delicious and so hopefully went some way to cheering you up!

Aw, Trig, I read your comment the day I got back! Then I looked at the website and drooled... Never mind, I had some fabulous kofte anyway...
