    This cake is a rich, moist fruit cake, perfect at Christmas. Try icing with marzipan for a more festive touch. This recipe is started in late November so as to let it mellow before Christmas.

    It looks really difficult but it is actually amazingly easy - its just the ingredients list that looks daunting. This also makes an unforgettable wedding or christening cake.

    With its two key ingredients - rum and butter - this Christmas cake recipe ought to be a hit. This is less dense and more cake-like than many Christmas cake recipes. It has become a favourite of my friends and family at Christmas, and is delicious by itself, or covered with a layer of marzipan and icing.

    This is a lovely white cake with glace cherries and sultanas added for those of you who don't want to go to the trouble of making fruit cakes. This freezes well.

    Wonderfully rich, dense chocolate fruit cake with hidden treasures like chunks of dark chocolate and dried apricots in every bite. Best if aged a few days before cutting and serving. If you like dark chocolate and crystallised ginger together - you'll love this cake!
