Feeding The Cake

Ok So its been a week since making the Christmas cake...Its been wrapped and stored in an airtight container now its time to feed it. Feed it with booze for an extra christmassy taste... any booze will do, Whisky, Brandy, Rum etc.
Or for a non alcholic cake you could make some spiced apple juice (tasty Waitrose recipe here)
Start by pricking the top of the cake with a cocktail stick. Each week you will need to turn the cake so one week feed the top then the following week turn it over and feed the bottom.

I use the little minitures you can buy...
they are cheap and convenient to use.

Pour over very gently over the cake...No need to saturate it as it wont give the cake extra flavour it will just make the cake soggy. You just want to slowly feed it for a yummy boozy flavour.

Then wrapped all back up and store untill next week when you will repeat the whole process!


  1. How do you stay off it until Christmas? Don't you want to try just a teeny tiny bit...?

  2. Well...The six mini ones I made for gifts have all gone! Lol...Yummy! Opps...will have to make some more!
