Xmas Cake 2011

Okay, it’s November. Halloween and Bonfire night have been and gone, so I suppose we can start talking about the C word. Christmas! A bit later than usual, I got my Chrismas cake on the go at the weekend. This year it’s Mother Cakes recipe – watch this space.

These two pics are of last years offering. Get your reindeer cake toppers here.

Cake Xmas 2011

If you fancy making this Christmas cake, get yourself 550g of dried fruit and mixed peel and soak for a week in 60ml of brandy. This year I went for sultanas, currants, raisins and apricots for the dried fruit. Figs are really special in a Christmas Cake too. If you do use mixed peel, this should make up about 60g of the 550g of fruit.

Come back next week for what to do next…
