Merry Christmas to all of you, hope you all had a blast on Christmas Eve. I was just busy backing cake and preparing dinner. Santa can come anytime so have to make everything ready.
I made one dry fruit Christmas cake. I hope Santa likes the cake but my home Santa (my husband) liked it a lot. For me Christmas has lots of memories, especially almost all 25th December most of our family members used to arranged some get together or picnic. And my Maa used to prepare the Christmas Cake in an old cake oven.
Wish you all a warm Merry Christmas. Hope Santa brings lots of joy and happiness for all of us.
