Do you remember the Christmas cake recipe and the explanation of our "Christmas Cake test" for prospective suitors (in our last post)?
Well, we had a wonderful weekend of baking and one of the suitors (we'll call him "Mr R") was put to the test.
Eish, it was such fun...!!!
MAXDOG: "Hey there guys, what are you doing?"
MAXDOG: "Okay you two lovebirds...throw in the ingredients!!!!"...
MAXDOG: Mr R, use those biceps! .... Would you stir a little faster please!....Eish, not SO fast!!! You should use a little more 'finesse' - we don't want to kill the cake!
MR R: "How many more packets do I have to stir in?"MISS R: "As many as I say, Monkey!"
MAXDOG: "Hey guys!....I am here, you know! ....What are you two doing?!? ....You should be concentrating!...!!!"
Well, we are happy to report that the Christmas cakes turned out very well!...
We end off this post with a picture of one of our breathtaking sunsets. This was taken on Friday afternoon amidst one of our common evening thunderstorms.
"Mr R" passed his "Christmas Cake test" with flying colours...."A++" !!!...
Mom however got an "F" for her efforts - she left out an ingredient or two.Thankfully Mr R saved the day with his stirring skills!!!...
I can happily say that the Cake tastes delicious - or so says Mom.Hope you all have an awesome, Christmassy day!Lots of licksMAXDOG IN SOUTH AFRICA
