Christmas Cake

Starting late this year, just putting the fruit to soak.

I've made Jamaican Christmas cakes for the last thirty years, mainly has presents, anyone else with having a go?

I think I'm addicted to the smell more than the eating, I also love using all the lush ingredients that go into the cakes.

I don't use a recipe as such just a tried and tested method over the years, and all measurements are done by eye.

I'm off for a warm mince pie and a cup of tea,

Re: Christmas Cake

Yes, I had my fruit soaking in a litre of brandy and a litre of whiskey for about 6 weeks then I made the cakes about 2 weeks ago. Iced and marzipan'd them 2 days ago. Slowly being given out to our friends in the local community.

I have a large cake that is uniced that I'm taking back with me to the UK for Christmas, I'll decorate it when I get there.

My house smells wonderful when I'm baking and when it's Christmas cake it's just divine.
