ms*robyn's vintage style Christmas
For my cakes, I use a 20cm. square cake tin - I have used a 23cm round tin but as I cut the cakes into quarters the square works better for me. I line the tin with three layers of greaseproof paper, greased between each layer and bringing the paper about 5cm above the top of the tin.
so before beginning, just make sure you have the correct sized tin & all ingredients - nothing worse than getting half way through and realizing you have something missing.......
tomorrow, I will be off to buy the next lot of fruit to soak * ya know, I have been making this cake for about 22 years or more...so I guess it is really a true tradition now !!!!
