A Slice of Iced Christmas Cake 2007

As requested, here is a photograph of the fruit cake which lies beneath the coating of icing and marzipan.
The cake cuts cleanly without crumbling and is a recipe I have been using for a few years now.
The recipe for the fruit cake was in a leaflet inside a video tape called The Fun of Cake Decorating by Elaine MacGregor.
Elaine ran the Woodnutt's School of Cake Decorating in Hove, Sussex many years ago, but unfortunately, I can't find any information about her or the school.

I love the recipe - kiwi and passion fruit mini pavlovas is very good idea. A nice photograph of the fruit cake, that lies beneath the coating of icing and marzipan.I never thought of taking the picture of the cakes, after they are cut.Nice idea to experiment with. Recently used a madeira cake, so that makes me wonder.
