I baked the Christmas cake yesterday. I always love they way the house fills with the smell during the long slow baking. When it cooled I stabbed some holes in it with a skewer and poured brandy all over it, then wrapped it up in baking paper and foil and put it away. I'll get it out a few more times for more "feedings" of brandy and by the time I come to decorate it and serve it, you won't be able to have more than a small slice if you're driving.
