I’m a sucker for a good Christmas cake. I am usually a bit of a cheap skate and I tend to buy mine in the sales after Christmas. To be honest we wouldn’t get around to eating it till then anyway with all the Christmas goodies in the house. There’s something about a home made one and if my cake decorating skills were up to it I would make my own. Sadly though the only bit I feel I could succeed with is the underlying fruit cake. Maybe one day I’ll feel confident enough to try with the icing. This cake was made by my sister in law’s sister and I think it looks fantastic.
