Not a question - I just thought this was worth mentioning
I am just icing my younger daughter’s wedding cake and started thinking about the number of fruit cakes that I have made.
My husband gave me Delia Smith’s Complete Cookery Course for our first wedding anniversary in 1983 - I wasn’t that bad a cook but it has been a joke ever since.
That Christmas I made Delia’s Rich Fruit cake and have done every year since. In addition to that I have made assorted celebration cakes, ruby weddings, golden weddings, Christenings, 21st’s, Christmas cakes for friends and relatives, in addition to 4 tiers for each of my two daughters' weddings. They have always been admired, enjoyed and commented on so I have never veered from that recipe. The recipe is well scribbled on now as I have multiplied the ingredients.
I have just done a quick tot up and I recon I have made upwards of 67 Rich Fruit Cakes!
I wonder if this is a record. I hope Delia is impressed!
