Geoff has a big birthday coming up soon.
Not to be put off doing one I looked through my favorite cake book…. Mary Berry’s Ultimate cake Book .
Last week I made the classic fruit Celebration cake, it took over 4 hours to bake and turned out looking and smelling very nice.
I am now feeding it with brandy preparing it for marzipan and icing.
What I hate most about making these cakes is that you wont actually know if its any good till the day its cut and eaten.
