    Chop up the dried fruit, no corpes (sultanas), add one or two bottle of grand marnier and soak for six months, I know I know, it's late, soak for six week, then add flour and chocolate and eggs etc etc

    YUm!!!!

    (for friends and family of course ;) )

    me and my best mate have agreed to make a small one each this year so that we're not eating it for months :) can't wait to do it. will probably do it some time this month. but how do you know how much alcofrol you've put in it without tasting the batter?

    I've only ever made a Christmas cake once and it was lovely, but I made royal icing as I much prefer it and forgot the glycerine. We practically had to chisel the cake open!

    hehehehe, haven't started yet, it was hell to get all the dried fruit I needed, and the fruit has to soak for about six weeks, so I will take a pic when I've made it. :D
