Hi I chanced upon your channel and your recipe is unique and would like to try out but do have a few questions .(1) Notice that u only uses 3 whites in the video and 6 yolks whereas recipe called for 6 eggs? (2) You mentioned that beat till the egg whites form soft peaks , is that possible when added into the creamed butter which is oily ? (3) Lastly can I use whisky (Johnny Walker Double Black Whisky) instead of brandy? Hope to hear from you. Tks!
Thank you for another fruit cake recipe you have so many different ones since I love fruitcake and it can last forever it's a must have in my books and a great gift people appreciate something like this not just at Christmas but through the year showers birthdays don't forget your elderly people who no longer can do much make one and divide amongst friends it's all the giving and sharing that makes a person truly happy inside I'm old enough to know that God bless you and your family ❤️😍
I made this cake today and it is delicious... the perfect taste i ever wanted when it comes to wedding cakes. Thank you so much madam for your guidance! You are a great teacher and i am a big fan of you. I have two questions; 1. Can I use one cup of flour instead of semolina? The cake is more tastier with semolina but just want to know this as a fact. 2. Do we have to apply anything on the cake before layering the almond or cashew nut paste on top? Thank you again for this yummy recipe :) :)

Hi, I live in Canada. I'm posting this comment on behalf of my husband. He recently took interest in cooking all because of your videos. He is not a professional cook but he has mastered cake making by learning from your videos. Thank you for your amazing detailed descriptions and step by step guild lines. Everyone loves his cakes at his work place.
Hi Menaka....so I have marinate the fruits put into a container and covered it with a foil paper and left in the fridge with a lid on and my plan is to leave it for a week. Is it ok to leave the fruit to marinate like that in the fridge? Or does it have to be outside. Also, I have read somewhere that after baking SL Xmas / wedding cake, you have to sort of pull it apart and mix it again ( like crumble it ) and re arrange (or press) into a pan again and then Leave it to cool! (Does that makes sense? ) :/ I'm so excited to try few of your recipes for this Xmas, NY times and I have started my first one today with this :D ....thanks so much 😀
Thanks for sharing the recipe.
my question is before applying the marzipan to the cake should I apply something?
after applying the marzipan for how long can I keep that should I store in a refrigerator ....
I want know this bcoz I am going to make this as wedding cake slices for the gift box

It remind's me how my Mommy had a hard time hiding the Christmas cake from me. I ate them all the mint that i could find the cake,The happiest night was the Christmas night, because I know there will be Christmas cake on the table,In Sri-Lanka the Christmas cake are made specially for Christmas visitors.
Thank you for the recipe. The only Problem is that I used way more brandy, two Cups. What should I do? Is it too late to take the remaining liquid? It's the first time that I am making rich cake. I also used pumpkin preserve, dates and macadamia and almonds nuts besides the ingredients that you've mentioned. Furthermore, I used 75 gram more cherries. That's why I used more brandy but I think that I've used too much,
