CHRISTMAS CAKE – Festive Fruit Cake

Last weekend I made our Christmas Pudding so this weekend it’s time to make the Christmas cake.  Usually I make my cake a bit earlier than this, but I decided to make this Festive Fruit Cake and it doesn’t need to be done as early as the more traditional cakes.   I haven’t made it for some years, the ingredients are a bit expensive as it’s full of glace fruit and brazil nuts, but my husband really likes it.  The original recipe was given to Mum by her best friend Tuppy, so I’ve always known it as Tuppy’s Christmas Cake.
