How to marzipan and ice your Christmas cake

This morning's advent calendar chocolate helpfully informed me that it's only five days until Christmas, so I thought it was about time I showed you how to decorate your Christmas cakes that you all rushed off and made after I posted the recipe.

Wigwambam at the Queen of Hoxton

Winter has well and truly come now. And where's the ideal place to shelter from the bitter cold? Why, in a wigwam on top of a building in East London of course!

So that's where I went last week with two of my most friendiest friends.

Meal and movie night

Tom and I recently had one of my best kinds of evenings - dinner followed by a film at two of our favourite places in Brixton.

It all started with molten cheese on a circle of chewy sourdough...

Mantanani Island

Are you ready for the last ever Borneo post?! How are you going to cope without them?

Everything we had done so far took place over a single week, so as happy as we were to be there, you can imagine that we were also pretty tired (even though scuba diving seems like just a lot of floating around and waving at fish, it actually burns about the same amount of energy as running!).

So for our last week we planned to do lots of nothing at all on a stunning, secluded island.
