Well after the upset and disappointment with my cake last night, I am glad to say I got my sloe gin bottled and ready with just one minor hic-up.
The catch broke on the jar !!! making it impossible to shake and mix up.
I was just about to cry when my son came to the rescue and mended it for me… “silly mother fancy not knowing how to mend it “
So its now been well shaken and is away in the dark….
Found this fabulousall about sloes.. if you fancy making sloe gin chocolates then take a look…
Update… my fruit is now soaking in brandy ready for a second attempt at the Christmas tree cake tomorrow
