Christmas Cake Recipe

Christmas would be incomplete without relishing on this fruity-sweet cake.

A Christmas cake may be light or dark, crumbly-moist to sticky-wet, spongy to heavy, leavened or unleavened, shaped round, square or oblong as whole cakes, cupcake, or petit fours, with marzipan, icing, glazing, dusting with icing sugar, or plain.

If a Christmas cake is covered in icing, it is quite common for it to be decorated – models of houses, of fir trees or of Santa Claus may be in the array of decorations.
