Christmas cake is one of the most important foods at Christmas time to English families.  This cake will need to be cooked at least from the end of October.  I like to start mine around September but I have been known to do it at the end of October, around Halloween time, and it still comes out good.  It needs several weeks for the cake to mature with the liquor, hence why we bake it so in advance.

This cake needs to be stored in two layers of parchment paper and two layers of foil until icing.  I also put mine in a plastic cake tin as well to help keep the moisture going.  It should be a very moist, but firm cake.
