The littles and I made a simnel cake today. They broke eggs, chopped glace cherries, weighed and measured, and helped mix it all together. I got to grate the zest of the lemon (yay), pour the cake mix into the tin, sort out the marzipan (middle of cake layer) and put it in the oven. Then I was allowed to put the marzipan on the top and egg wash it while the girl made the apostles. The boy had given up on us by this point. My final act was to grill the cake, and I almost didn’t burn it this year!
