This is a 24 page guide that teaches you how to expertly marzipan and ice a fruit cake.
We give you the equipment list, some basic information on fruit cakes and how to handle them straight from the oven, giving tips on feeding extra alcohol into your cake, levelling your cake, and of course marzipan and covering.
This guide has lots of tips on how to deal with an uneven cake, and teaches you two different ways to marzipan (one for a rounded edge and one for a sharp edge).
Then on to covering your cake, again we teach you multiple ways to deal with covering the cake and the board, plus how to deal with pesky air bubbles (and why they can occur).
And finally we give you our delicious rich fruit cake recipe in 8 tin sizes from 6" to 13" round and square!
