Still looks good. I should make a fruit cake again soon.
You should. Does a body good, does a bit of fruit.
Fruit in cake?! Does not compute... core meltdown imminent... Danger! Danger!
These anti-fruitcake people have never had a good one. It's simple. If you bought it in a store there is no way it has as much brandy in it as mine. That's why it sucked.
As so often, Ant is on the money here. A fruit cake should have fruit in it, not just a couple of sad strawberries plonked listlessly on top.
Frosting jokes get deleted? I gotta learn to navigate the baking waters better ;)
I don't remember deleting anything of yours. I've been getting a shitload of spam on some of my older posts recently, so it might have got caught up in amongst those. Apologies if so.After everything else we've talked about it'd seem s bit odd to start taking offence at jokes about cakes at this point, eh? What was the joke? What was it? Tell me! TELL ME!!!!!(It better be bloody good ;)
Kamo/Ant - Is it acceptable for you to put custard on fruit cake? Just wondering.Also, I have done my first book review. Please put me on your blog roll if you don't mind. Thanks.
I just had too google Hard Sauce. It's basically Brandy Butter taken to ridiculous extremes, isn't it?Each to their own, but custard and cake doesn't really work for me. I guess if it was a really moist fruit cake it could work. More to the point, I'm not so much of a custard fan generally and if I want it here I'd have to make it from scratch. I just don't like it enough to do that.
