A beautiful Christmas fruit cake that's decorated with marzipan and then royal icing. You don't soak the fruit beforehand but you do have the option of spooning over a few tablespoons of brandy every week until you are ready to ice and decorate your cake.
This cake turned out fab put extra brandy in it yum yum thanks Jonathan - 09 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)

i haven't made a Christmas cake for years but decided to make one. i had mine eaten before the big day all to myself. I also made two more to give as Christmas presents, they were delighted with the results my brother-law wants another one making. so i'll have to call it something else. any ideas? it really was the best fruit cake I have tasted - 27 Jan 2015 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
