Fully Iced Rich Fruit Cake [Christmas Cake] (Sainsbury’s)
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Christmas cake! I choose this rather lovely cake as it looks like a good rich fruit cake, and it is in a convenient shape. I do find it a lot easier to cut an oblong cake, rather than a round one, even if it does lead to arguments over who gets the first slice with all the icing!
This cake was absolutely lovely. The fruit section is dark and flavoursome, sticky and succulent. The icing was nice and sweet and added contrast to the other flavours. The marzipan was quite a thin layer though, but for me that meant it was well proportioned, marzipan fans may well disagree!
I was very pleased with the cake, and it certainly went down fast enough with everyone who tried it!
