Mini Christmas Cakes
These cakes are a lighter version of a typical British Christmas Cake. Dried fruits, including dates, sultanas and currants, are mixed with a festive spiced sponge and topped with marzipan and royal icing. Enjoy these cakes as a Holiday dessert or as a treat with a hot cup of tea. Makes 8.
Some have had a long held fear of traditional fruit cake. Stories of ugly, dense, heavy and oversweet cake are greatly exaggerated! The British fruit cake is not filled with candied fruits but rather with quality dried fruits, often soaked in alcohol, and is a moist cake whose sweetness comes from its decoration.
