I am determined to make a Christmas Cake for my husband this year if it's the last thing I do!
|From Readers Digest|
I'm going the traditional route as well: nuts, cherries, almond paste, royal icing, Christmas decorations...
I am actually quite excited to start! Not excited enough to have bought the ingredients yet... but excited!
I'm going to make the actual cake next week, skewer it and add the brandy into the holes once a week (wonder if that's too much?) and then about a week from Christmas I'll do the icing and decorations.
I think we're having my parents over for Christmas as well. It'll be the first time I host them! :)
Here's an idea! How about joining me? I'll be taking photos of my progress, and I would love to see yours! Here's the recipe I'm using. Just note that the recipe is missing the spices, which are VERY IMPORTANT, so add one and half teaspoons of mixed spice to your flour.
Let me know if you'll be joining me!
