Christmas Cake

Last year some of my German friends asked me what an English Christmas Cake is and what it looks like. I don’t need to explain this to my English readers surely . This is the cake I baked last year together with my Mum taking my Nana’s recipe.

Of course the cake was fed once a week with some brandy! 🙂

I decorated it with this delightful decoration idea from the book “Using cutters on cakes” by Sandra Monger.

This is what a slice looked like.

If I want to bake a Christmas Cake this year I need to hurry up! Looking at my calendar though I think I will go for some cute cupcakes instead.
