It's got cold hasn't it. Like really not very nice cold. I'm not good in this weather but it made today's cake kind of appropriate.
I have been asked to donate a cake to a silent auction for charity and this is it. It's great being able to make Christmas cakes so far in advance, and really, the longer the better for the fruit cake to mature. I soaked the fruits over night in brandy and cointreau so that penguin may find some boozed up fish down there!
