Ideally, make this cake in November to let the flavours mellow before Christmas. It is very good with a marzipan icing.

Serve this rich, moist pudding with custard or cream on any special occasion, but for Christmas choose one of the traditional butters or sauces (see footnote). To follow Grandma's tradition of adding coins to the pudding, you can clean decimal coins by boiling them and slip them in just before serving. Create slits for the coins with a thin, sharp knife.

This is a nice basic construction but you can make your house more elaborate as you get more familiar with the process. Use your imagination and lollies and icing to make doors, windows, pathways and a garden. The gingerbread needs to sit overnight after cooking and after assembly - the fun is in the decorating!

I started making this Christmas cake when I was 20, and have made it every year since. I try to make it in November, so it has a minimum of one month to be fed with plenty of booze to make it super moist and delicious! The alcohol acts as a natural preservative too, allowing her to be enjoyed right into New Years.

My family aren't big on Christmas pudding so we opt for ice-cream cakes. They are easy to make with the children, look and taste great. Can make them in tree shaped moulds to be more festive. My daughter made a small Christmas tree and was so proud of her efforts.
