This section of the Merry Forums is presented by Merry Christmas Recipes, our own database of Christmas recipes, many of which get submitted by our users from around the world.
I did `cheat' slightly this year as I didnt make the marzipan and fondant from scratch (like I usually do) but that gave me more time to make the little fondant decorations to decorate the cake. The fondant and marzipan I used was a Renshaws variety which tastes pretty good.
Anyway, am pleased to say the cake went down very well - was over at my folks for Christmas and on Boxing Day (i.e. yesterday) my mum's Christmas pudding ended up burning in the microwave so we ended up improvising with my Christmas Cake and cream (which tasted just as nice). There is just over a quarter of the cake left which isnt bad considering it was pretty big!
