The traditional English Christmas Cake is a favorite or ours, in part because it is so long-lasting and makes an excellent treat on the trails in winter, especially with a thermos of tea.
A traditional Christmas Cake is a dried-fruit based cake soaked in brandy, covered with marzipan and then royal icing. Typically, the cakes are decorated with traditional iconic holiday decorations, holly, pine cones, Christmas trees…you get the idea.
This year, with the expectation we may not be able to ride our snowboards due to the restrictions related to COVID-19, we decorated our cake with two brash snowboarders shredding a little powder. A girl and boy can dream, can’t they?
Until the next post….we will be on the trail, eating cake.
