Solstice Cake 2008 - heads up

Hi All,

I heard about this on the Confessions of a Food Nazi blog.

I'm going to make my mum's christmas cake: it's a mammoth lead-weight of mixed dried fruit steeped overnight in rum, densely packed and held together by a bit of flour (and other stuff! can't give away the family secret... yet... hehe).

I made it for the first time about 18 months ago. This time, due to the size of the original recipe, I'm only going to make a half-size cake for the solstice. And I don't know if I'll get time to ice it before I head to Canberra for a few weeks... but I'll keep you posted!

Looking forward to hearing about your family's secret! With icing, too.

Should be good.
