Christmas Cake and Experimenting with Babywearing

Having spent last week sat mainly on the sofa holding baby Plum because i) of the snow and ii) baby Plum has decided she hates her cot/gym/bouncy chair ... everything that isn't mummy! I thought I would give "Babywearing" a go ....

So I popped Baby Plum into the sling and headed into the kitchen to marzipan my Christmas cake ...

This year I have followed Ruth Clemens excellent tutorial so I sliced off the slight dome

Then ate the bit I had sliced off ... delicious!


One marzipanned cake ... not sure how much Baby dribble made it into the cake!!

Turns out that Baby Plum also hates the sling so I am back on the sofa, catching up with Replay, doing a bit of knitting, and babe in arms!

that christmas cake is coming along beautifully, I understand what your going through at the moment with your little one, baby Oscar is 28 weeks old and has decided he has to be attached to me 24 hours a day, the cuddles are lovely and ever so precious but he's hard work bless him.
Have a great day and stay safe.

ooh I remember little sweetpea being like that, dancing was the only thing that calmed her for a while. you did really well to do the cake with baby plum in the sling. Hope she gives you some time to yourself soon.
