Creative Inspirations - Case It!

Good Morning!
I'm back with a card for this week's challenge at CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS which is the final Case It challenge of the year, this month it is the turn of Shell
I thought I would share some more photo's of the bake I managed to do yesterday seeing the Christmas Cake photo's seem to go down well ;) Here is a photo of the cake after it had cooled overnight before being wrapped in tin foil ...

Yesterday I tried making Mince Pies for the first time! I was never a fan of these but wanted to make some for my partner and the fact that they are Christmassy, however I did indeed try one after they had cooked and I have to say I am now converted ... I love them! I will admit I added a bit too much filling but I don't think these are bad for a first attempt ...
