Spicy Cake and a 20 year Celebration


Normally I had planned to post my Daring bakers post, but I guess that one will have to wait for a week more.
Today I want to post a Special good news.
Today we are celebrating Our 20 th Wedding Anniversary.
Looks like years have just flown.
Ofcourse as most of the marriage we have had Good times and Bad Times. But it is the plenty of Good times that I want to celebrate.

And we indeed are celebrating today with our family with a small party, I was telling hubby dear why did we get married on  this month as there is so many parties in this short time that no one would want to eat anything anymore :-) But I guess we have not trouble in clebrating with good family, food wine and good food.
Now I din't make this cake especially for today.
This is my christmas cake but I thought as it is a celebration I would post this Delicious Spicy Christmas Cake. I made this last year and I loved it so much and this has ended up beeing my sisters and friends favourite recipe and mine too as I made them again this year.
I did add some 150 gm more fruit than the original recipe and soaked the fruits for almost 3 weeks and then made the cake and left it to mature for another 2 weeks. Before wrapping up the cake for maturing poked witha tooth pick on top and poured 2 tabp of Brandy.
I coverd the cake with Marzipaan and the snowman and the snow flakes I did with Royal Icing.

I feel so sorry for your kids if you have any and they are eating these... you use so much of food color very unhealthy especially for kids. It has been proved the kids eating food containing food color are aggravating ADD and ADHD (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) symptoms and the other being Cancer.

Jo I use good edible color and I dont think kids eat a whole cake they eat a small slice and I dont think they are going to be get sick from it as they say everything in moderation.
