Ho ho ho - I made a christmas cake. It is Delia's recipe, except that I didn't have brandy so soaked the fruit in Amaretto. I even bought a special cake tin from restaurant supply shop in Rotorua, because Delia says that the secret to successful baking is to use the right-sized tin.
I offered to swap this cake for a raft trip at Okere Falls. And Tom at Foris has agreed, so I'm delivering the cake later this week. Anyone want to come down the river to help balance out the raft? Can't wait!
