My Christmas cake is rich and moist, yet light. The initial preparation to this cake is time consuming but worth spending the time.
Decorate however you wish. I glaze the top apricot jam, roll out marzipan over the top. Then I mix a little golden syrup into about 400g of glace cherries, whole almonds and walnuts. Then I spread out this mixture over the marzipan and press down. Toast under a grill for a few minutes until golden. Leave to cool.
