Christmas cake

I brought this christmas cake back from Birmingham to share with my colleages come december, and it has not been easy not to take a bite or two because it smells simply divine! -And i know it tastes great, because i had more than a few tastings at the stand...
I love the texture on these cakes. I soaked the cake thoroughly with my husband´s brandy, I don´t know if that´s the way to treat it, but i bet it´s pretty tasty :) Can´t wait - I´ll have to try making these cakes myself.

The cover is marzipan fondant, not too easy to paint on as the wetness draws out in the marzipan.
