This is a fantastically rich, moist and fruity Christmas cake. It's best to make this cake ahead of time for the flavours to mature. Enjoy as is or cover in a layer of marzipan and royal icing.
Really easy and a great smelling cake. Can not wait for Christmas to taste the mature cake. - 14 Nov 2011
Can't wait until mines comes out the oven, the smell is amazing. Since the 1st review (13 Nov), i added some brandy twice before putting mazipan and icing on it. Once Christmas dinner was over, i cut into it and it was delightful. Everyone was some impressed how moist it was. For the 2nd year running, ive made this (square), and i`m going to have to make another(circle), so it will be a 2 tier Christmas cake - 13 Nov 2015
I made this two years in a row, and it really is fantastic! - 14 May 2015
