This is ultimate luxury in a cake. When you open the box and see the red ribbon around the cake and the decoration on top, you may not want to ever eat it. But when you do cut into the cake and enjoy the rich fruit cake inside, everyone at the Christmas dinner table will love it. First, only real vine fruits (sultanas and currants) are used in this cake - no green apple pieces with artificial coloring! Honey and ground cinnamon give the cake an unusual richness even before the brandy is added. On top of the cake is a layer of almond marzipan, and finally the entire cake is coated with royal icing. This icing creates a hard shell that keeps the cake moist until you cut into it on Christmas day. Please store this in a cool dry place until you are ready to enjoy. The cake measures 6.75" in diameter and stands 2.5" tall but this cake weighs over 2.5 lbs. Serves 8-10.
