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 apricot jam, then 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 5.75" in diameter and stands 3" tall but this cake weighs over 3 lbs. Serves 8-10.

The Walkers story begins over a hundred years ago in 1898, when the twenty-one year old Joseph Walker opened the doors of his own bakery with a loan of £50 and the dream of making the finest shortbread in the world. By 1975, Walkers had outgrown their extended bakery, and moved to a custom built factory that gave them the extra space and facilities they needed to develop new products such as Chocolate Chip Shortbread and speciality biscuits. Still family owned and operated, today the third generation of the Walker family are using the same traditional recipe developed over 100 years ago, and is the largest shortbread company in the world.
