This is THE best Christmas cake ever! I grew up in the UK and have had many Xmas cakes and loved this the most. I made it a month before serving which is short but it still turned out flavourful. I cooled the cake and then poked holes with a skewer and poured 1/4C of brandy before wrapping up and storing in a cool place. I repeated the process twice more. I then put marzipan icing, let dry and topped off with fondant icing and decorations. I was iffy about how it would be received by Americans since I think English Christmas cakes are an acquired taste but EVERYBODY loved this cake! So it's really worth the effort. I'm going to make mine in Sept. next year and I'm also going to make one for my Irish mum for her to keep till Christmas! It's moist, dark, spicey, and really full of flavour! Very best!!
