    Christmas is the time of the year for coming together with your friends and family – it is also the time of the year for indulging in Christmas cake! It is the perfect thing to eat after your plump Christmas goose; assuming you have the room. I recommend you do keep some room though, because you will not want to miss this dark, flavorful, and moist fruit cake. It uses an almond paste icing which just adds a richness perfect for the festivities.
