Wow! that looks great, I love fruit cake especially when it's covered in marzipan and icing. I bet John's Mum loved it as well, did she have a party ?

Thanks Joan, Jean's not a lover of Marzipan but she doesn't mind the icing. she did love it and will no doubt be tucking into it later. John's sister is taking her for a meal today and we visited yesterday, I say we, John was unwell so Han and I went to visit and drop the presents off. We even sang Happy birthday and everything.

I think she peeled the marzipan off it, I know Han likes to eat the icing for her. :D
