Sweet fare from Christmas day

I meant to post these earlier. The iced cake is care of Janet, with decoration by the young Fischer girls. Mark made the Stollen, and the shiny cake was my first Christmas fruit cake attempt. The recipe was in my mother's collection: the fruit is boiled and Bakeo pastry mix added, as well as butter, chocolate sauce and some fortified wine. In the blue biscuit barrel was shortbread (the kind my sister taught me to make). Coconut ice, in the glass jar, with glace cherries and pistachios.
