Ideally, make this cake in November to let the flavours mellow before Christmas. It is very good with a marzipan icing.
Just baking the cake, followed it to the letter, the aroma is wafting throughout the house - will update on the taste and flavour when I finally get to eat it :-) really smells yummy Update: Tasted really good - going to be my recipe for the years to come Thank you ! - 23 Nov 2011
