Christmas Cake

I used to make my own every year. It was quite expensive as lots of the ingredients came in larger packets than I needed and over the years I began to realise that it was a lot of effort for something which wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea. So I started to buy one. Always a good one (M and S) but this year I had a rethink.  I decided to buy the Christmas Cake Kit. Everything you need (except butter eggs and an orange) to make one decent sized cake.

I love it! Even the fruit mix (including cherries!) came pre-soaked in brandy ! Packs of mixed spice,  of chopped nuts, brown sugar and flour,  and even a pack each of icing and marzipan to ice it later !

Now all I need is for it to taste good and I will be a Christmas cake kit convert.
