As with the white chocolate mud cake, this sponge cake offers a dense but moist texture. Not as white in its finished baked appearance, but it will satisfy the taste buds of any party-goer.
This is a slightly lighter cake than the traditional rich fruit cake. Again, this cake is packed full of spices and fruit and is traditionally flavoured with dark rum or Scottish whiskey. This cake is well suited for a more relaxed celebratory event but is equally adaptable for a wedding cake if the richness of the classic fruit cake is not required. This cake can have the nuts taken out of the recipe but it will be covered with marzipan, so will not be suitable for any persons suffering from any nut allergy. This cake will keep for several months if wrapped in appropriate wrappings.
Classic Rich Fruit
A truly majestic cake, it is full of warm spices and fruit. It can be matured with most flavoured alcohol, but the classics would include whiskey, rum, sherry or brandy.
