No Christmas dinner would be complete without a traditional Christmas cake.

“Basically anyone can make a Christmas cake; it just knowing the good the ingredients.

We use very little flour, we don’t use currents because it makes them (Cake mixture) dry and nutty, and a good alcohol you must have a good alcohol and you must soak it (the fruit mixture).

The longer you soak the fruit the moister the cake will be.”

2010 has also seen a renaissance in traditional candy. Retro sweets are coming back this season, so do your dieting now, and enjoy your gifts later.
