I made a 12 inch fruit cake today. I was amazed by how much was in it. 16 eggs, several kilograms of fruit and sugar. Trying to find a bowl big enough to fit all of these ingredients was my biggest challenge today. I ended up using a sort of bucket like pan used for steaming veg normally.
My dad wandered into the kitchen whilst I was stirring manically and said I looked like something out of Macbeth. Thanks… I guess. Hmmmm. This cake is for a bottom layer of a 4 tier wedding cake I’m making so I’ve made a few weeks before the wedding so that it matures properly. It’s all baked and wrapped up nicely in a corner of the kitchen now. What a good way to spend a Sunday. I’m looking forward to icing it!
