@Winsome, I've been tearing up the Google searches looking for this recipe - are there any more hints, please? Does it use typical vine fruit or other more tropical/exotic dried fruit, please?Winsome wrote: I've just today ordered the ingredients for mine. I use a Jane Asher recipe which I got from the TV Times magazine many years so...containing Drambuie and dried mango etc. ..
The past couple of years I haven't made a cake though. I'm the biggest fan in our family (and majority of my friends aren't fans of fruit cakes either) so I wind up eating most of it - and my MIL and SIL both make cakes too, and we normally travel to them over the festive season, so it feels a bit decadent to have one at home.
Marzipan is always hard to track down in Australia too. I've had to make it myself a couple of years.
I might be called upon to make a small pud, but in all honesty, for what you have to buy, it's easier to buy one of those as well. I do enough cooking!
This is our Christmas cake from last year. We always have a 'Nativity Scene' Over the years various interlopers have become part of the scene. We like the curiously sized livestock. Until I bought the central figures from Poundland a few years ago the little santa used to take the part of baby Jesus. In fact last year's cake was less crowded than usual as the 'children' are all grown up now and their attention span is not what it was!
Non Diving Daughter has started her cake- fruit soaking in mucho booze.
Mine is scheduled for Friday...
