Holiday Cakes with Weekend Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #207!

I have had so many neat things to share on this blog that I still have Christmas holiday photos! My mother-in-law made two holiday cakes, besides all of the wonderful meals. By the way, she is fearless in the kitchen. She used to own a small restaurant and country inn that served fine dining. She was also the head chef and she is mostly self-taught.

On our Christmas holiday, she made the fruit cake. Jessica and Samantha decorated it with a snowman while Amanda watched. He looks like he's dancing a jig.

For Christmas lunch, my mother-in-law made a Bombe Alaska (Baked Alaska). Instead of baking it in the oven, she used a blow torch. The one she had was for removing paint, but that didn't deter her! We kept screeching at her and making her laugh in the kitchen as we watched her set the sugar in the meringue on fire. Somehow, she managed to keep the delicate fresh raspberries around the bottom of it intact!
