Feeding and decorating a Creole Cake
Asked on 25 Nov 2020 by West
After over 20 years of making Delia's traditional Christmas cake, this year we have made the creole Christmas cake, and it looks and smells delicious.
Just a couple of queries. Presumably with all the alcohol in at the start, this cake will not require feeding with brandy. I also assume that this can have marzipan and royal iced top and sides as with the traditional cake.
You don’t need to feed a creole cake but as all the alcohol is cooked out, we do about 3 or 4 times. It’s personal preference. The feeding does make the cake moister and obviously gives it a kick.
Yes, you can marzipan and ice a Creole Cake.
