My cakes are made too, and busy drowning in alcohol. I have a busy few weeks coming up, so it was good to get the baking out of the way.

I have ordered a cake from Betty's... My mother likes it. She would almost certainly will not like one I make and let me know it! N.B this is not a reflection on my cake making skills. Thing is, Betty's ones are only very small.
I might make the last minute Nigella one again later on. Will see. Hardly seeems worth it for just two of us (OH and I.) :(

editI I thought I'd ordered one! I had better get on the case.

In all my life, I have never had a Christmas where cake and pudding are routinely made and/or eaten ! Not even when I were a young'un and definitely never as an adult ... :rolleyes:

I made Nigella Lawson's Chocolate Fruit Cake several years ago. It was moist and rich enough to be a pudding, and probably too moist to be a cake, really. It was absolutely delicious, but not very traditional. I don't do this sort of baking anymore - not enough people around who would eat it.

We always had Christmas tea - afternoon tea style - with the cake (decorated properly with Royal icing) as the centrepiece. The cake lasted well into January. A lot of people don't seem to care much for a traditional rich fruit cake with icing and marzipan these days. I love it and I used to love decorating the cake too, I find it quite sad that so many traditions have changed with the times but I guess it always was so!

The chocolate one looks very interesting Suelle - and quite decadent!.

I really do like traditional cake, although I usually peel off the marzipan and icing and give it to someone else.

Since Chirstmas dinner was usually at lunchtime, pushing 2pm not infrequently, 'tea' was a help yourself affair, but with Christmas cake and trifle on offer (amongst other desserts/baked goods). My mother went to so very much effort.

White and crumbly, or stilton, I take it?

Orkney or Arran cheddar on a piece of Dundee cake or dumpling cake for me please if we are doing cake & cheese. :chops:
I seldom make or buy a Christmas cake these days, I gave up a few years ago when it was still lurking in February. However most years I will make a boiled fruit cake /dumpling cake and soak it with a little brandy. Any not eaten over Christmas gets sliced and frozen and added to a cooked breakfast when the kids are home.

I mixed up the fruit, nuts and brandy for my cake today. I'm a bit dubious really. OH wouldn't notice if it was homemade or a bought one and I had problems with cramp in my right arm last year mixing the fruit into the batter.

I used to make a 12" square one when the kids were little - no idea why as they all hated it - it was almost entirely eaten by my husband, my granny and my cleaner. Would usually last into February. I have an 8" square one this time.

Everything is lined up for Sunday when the puddings will be stirred up. I even managed to find some Guinesswhich is not always so easy.
