Poinsettia Christmas Cake
This Christmas Cake is classic example of enriched bread that has been a staple of British holiday celebrations for many centuries. The cake is filled with an assortment of dried fruits, nuts, sugar fruits, spices and marinated over 6-8 weeks with a cupful of brandy. The cake is covered with rolled white fondant and topped with three red sugar paste Poinsettia flowers.
