About this Bake

Top tier is false, 2nd tier is sponge cake, bottom tier is fruit cake with lots of brandy so nice and moist. 5 packs of icing, and 1 pack marzipan, takes 3 weeks to prepare all together for fruit cake to mature. The fruit cake is a Delia Smith recipe.

Top tip

Make sure you have everything to hand. The bottom tier weighs around 17 pounds so needs 2 people holding it.
