    Thanks Ruth for the beautiful recipes you have posted on The Twelve Days Of Christmas. All lovely achievable recipes. After making the Baileys Pastry Mince Pies, I am now going to make another batch for our local librarian who has run our monthly book club and kept us fed on sandwiches each meeting.
    Now go and do your Christmas shopping……

    Thank you Ruth for your great recipes. Each day for the past 12 I have eagerly opened up a new jem. Typically in South Australia Christmas is a fairly hottish (is that a word) affair but at my house we have the whole roast thing (turkey, pork and ham) and if I dare change it my kids (now grown) would have a fit. I hope you and your family have a safe and happy Christmas and New Year and look forward to any other fantastic recipes you post.

  11. Anna Kerr says:

    Hi Ruth, Thank you for all your emails and fantastic recipes. You are an inspiration to all us Mum’s out there. Have a very Merry Christmas and may God bless you and your family. xxx

  12. Sharon Peters says:

    Ruth, can I just say – your recipe for Christmas Cake is absolutely the best ever! We will be using it from now on – so delicious! Thank you so much.

  13. Tori says:

    Hey Ruth,
    I’m considering buying a stand mixer and wondered if you used one for your baking? If so, what brand is it, what do you like about it, and would you recommend it?
    Thank you very much,
    Tori

    • Hi Tori – I use my stand mixer all the time so they’re definitely a worthwhile investment if you bake regularly. The Kenwood K Mix, Kenwood Chef and Kitchen Aid are all very good and I don’t notice a difference between them in performance. Looks wise the K Mix and Kitchen Aid win. Price wise its the Kenwood Chef, which is less than half the price of the other two.
      My preference is probably Kenwood over Kitchen Aid because it has a tight splashguard which stays where it should and stops anything escaping – no more icing sugar clouds! x

    thanks for the cake ideas they are great but struggled a bit with the icing but will get there this is a new venture for me

  15. Abigail says:

    Hi Ruth,
    I see that I am 12 months too late, but I have only just come across your blog. It is really lovely and so helpful!
    I have taken inspiration from your Starry Christmas cake and entered my little boy’s school fete competition. And I won!!! So thank you so so much! It has definitely given me a confidence boost, and I’m ready to try again! (ok, what I am not telling you is that there were only two cakes entered in the competition, but still… )
    Have a lovely Christmas! Abigail
