Christmas Cake Decorating

Having baked the Christmas cake quite a few weeks ago, it was finally time to start decorating it today. I used a different recipe for the cake this year and had been feeding it with brandy for about 6 weeks. It seemed a little more moist than cakes of previous years but was looking good....
