Wow... that sounds fantastic!! I'm gonna try my hand at a crimbo cake this year for the 1st time ever, my little boy is now loving cake so thought it would be nice for us to make one together. I've never seen a recipe with choc in tho... sound superb... is there any chance you could let me have the recipe??

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 would love to, but it was given to me by a friend who is trying to sell is commercially so I better not. I think Nigella does a chocolate christmas cake ;)

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
