    Hi Everyone :)

    I love this SW book but I was wondering if anyone has made the Christmas cake in it ??? It looks lush, so I just want some confirmation if anyone has made it and thinks its as good as it looks!!!

    Thanks in advance

    PS Has anyone made anything else from this book ? I'd love to hear about it.

    The book sounds great. I don't go to class so don't see the recipe books they sell. I'd love the recipe for the Christmas cake though if you wouldn't mind posting it here or messaging me with it!

    I have done the Red Cabbage and the Whiskey orange triffle. Both lovely and I would recommend the book. I portion up the red cabbage as it freezes really well. Great to have with sausage casserole or spicey chicken.

    So has anyone else tried any of the recipes. I am tempted with the beetroot soup and that chutney... maybe when I get back from my hold I will give it a go

    I've made a few things out of it

    -mince tarts: tasted and looked great but because the pastry was so short (i.e. less butter) it was really fiddly to roll out and kept tearing. Got there in the end though. I also halved the recipe to make 16 but only ended up with 13. (I think I rolled the pastry a bit thick).

    -mushroom filo crackers: again lovely, though a bit fiddly but that's just cause it was filo pastry. Maybe not worth the effort but good for a special occasion

    -lime and ginger spritzer: really lovely and refreshing. Even OH liked it and he's a Guinness man. I wasn't sure what ginger cordial was though so used ginger beer and adjusted syns.

    -tikka drumsticks. yum yum yum, well worth it and a good year round dinner.

    there's some lovely recipes in the book now i look. I might be more adventurous this week!
