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.

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 year, in a bid to maintain Christmas spirit despite the limited funds, we decided to make a variety of edible goodness for the family. It's a very simple gingerbread recipe, although cooking times do vary quite considerably depending on the shape you carve your biscuits into I found out.
