Feeding a Christmas Cake with fruit juice
Asked on 12 Nov 2019 by Firefly
Hi Lindsey, I've just made Delia's Classic Christmas cake and I want to feed it but not with alcohol. I've heard that it's possible to use orange juice to feed it instead, but I'm wondering if I should use fresh or orange juice or juice from concentrate? And how often should I feed it?
I would not feed a cake with anything but alcohol unless it’s just before decorating.
If fed with fruit juice you cake will only last as long as the use by date of the juice.
