Christmas Cake Stage 3 – Feeding the Cake

Just a reminder, don’t forget to feed you Christmas cake. Unwrap it, prick the top with a skewer and drizzle over a few teaspoons of Brandy. Then wrap it back up and keep it in a cool dark place until next week, when it will be time for another feeding.

On another note, the lovely Antonia from Food Glorious Food awarded me the ‘I love your blog’ award. Thanks Antonia it really made me smile.

I now wish to pass it on to Gigi from Gigi Cakes – my long time friend (even though we’ve never actually met) who bakes a whole host tempting treats

Johanna from Green Gourmet Giraffe who proves that Vegetarian food is anything but boring

And The Cake Crusader who bakes delicious cakes and indulgent desserts

Quick tip for feeding your Christmas cake... flip the cake at each feeding so that the delicious booze penetrates the entire cake. (This also minimises the risk of any sogginess if you get a little too enthusiastic with the booze!)

Glad you liked the flapjacks! This cake looks great! I love Christmas cake, I haven't made one this year, although I have made a pudding.

I see you're coming to the Good food show tomorrow. Should be fun, I'll see you there!
