About this Bake

I made this for our son and daughter-in-law, Ant and Chelle. It's made from two 9" rich fruit cakes and iced with royal icing.

Top tip

When colouring icing, add a drop at a time of food colouring until the right shade is reached. I made the castle walls by sandwiching the icing between two sheets of acetate, using chopsticks as a thickness guide and cutting out the crenellations before the icing set.
