Feeding a cake? 1 more question in OP

Postby gilbertandmartha » Sat Nov 30, 2013 1:46 am

DO I have to use booze?

Can I slice a chunk off now to try it? Its possible it could be a load of rubbish and i'd rather find out now!

I honestly don't know! But if you are not using booze then do you even need to feed it because isnt' that the point of feeing it :lookround: ??

No you don't need to feed it with booze.

I usually make mine in early November and it keeps beautifully until Christmas!
I wrap mine in tin foil and put in a container until I decorate it.

I hate boozy Christmas cakes!

You don't have to feed it at all, but if you do, I think it needs to be with alcohol.
I've feed mine a tiny bit, but now I'm just going to leave it alone until it's time to decorate.

I am quite happy to be fed cake with booze.

Baileys for preference and please cut my cake into bite sized pieces <hic>
:wine: :cake:
