Christmas Cake Two

Well the fruit had time to soak in the brandy and then it was time to make the cakes. Here they are now.

The mixture prior to cooking 

In the oven note cover the top of each cake and double line tins stops edges becoming scorched and dried out as the cake takes four and a half hours to cook in the bigger tins.

 The finished cakes ready to feed with brandy until just before Christmas when they'll be covered in marzipan and iced.

Smaller cakes take less time to cook but they make great little gifts and I always get requests for small cakes.

These cakes will then be wrapped in grease proof paper and feed weekly with brandy to give them the right Christmas boozy taste. Keep them in tins not plastic boxes to ensure freshness .
