Mary Berry's Victorian Christmas cake recipe: not a fan of the dark, dense Christmas cakes covered in icing? Mary Berry's Victorian version is lighter in texture and gorgeously decorated with nuts and dried fruits.
Traditional Christmas fruit cakes don't always have to be decorated in the same traditional style. We think that these gingerbread decorations from BakingMad.com will give your cake at lovely modern feel this year!
Light fruit cake. Deliciously spicy and just a little crumbly. N.B: this mix is rather wet and required almost doubling the bake time. Sprinkle some demerara sugar on top, whilst the cake is still warm, for a lovely sugary crust.
