Henry likes to watch proceedings when ever cooking. Put up sweet pastry yesterday, so I could when I came home from milking this morning get some mince pies and jam tarts in the oven quickly. I'm the only one who really likes mince pies in our home, but tomorrow we will have the in-laws over for tea and they like mince pies, so hopefully can load off a few of these on them. The jam tarts though will be gone in a wink of an eye and for the record, Henry did get a bit of sweet pastry for his patience.
Just got my Yule Log finished as well, normally I dust with icing sugar just before displaying, but have gone with these snowflake sprinkles which I'm not sure I'm going to live to regret putting on now by tomorrow, when I find them dissolved on the cake, nothing though a dousing of icing sugar will not cure, I hope.
