Feeding the Christmas Cake


  1. Now we have taken the cake out of its tin and it’s time to feed it. Don’t worry. It is supposed to be this dark.
  2. We are going to flip the cake upside down and inject it with whiskey. I have a turkey baster and injector to do this, but you can just poke 5-6 holes it with a skewer and drop a half a teaspoon of whiskey or so in each hole.

3. Now wrap the cake tightly with parchment paper or plastic wrap and place it in an airtight container. I have a proper tin, but I used a different pan this year and it was just “this much” too big for my tin.

4. Unwrap the cake and feed it like this once a week, until it’s time to decorate.
