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!

This is NOT THE original Xmas cake ingredients to make a Sri Lankan cake. The original recipe belongs to the Dutch burghers bit somehow it appears that this cake ingredients have been watered down along with its method.

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 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 😀

Hi, If I make wedding cakes out of this recipe, do I have to make any changes? How many pieces Can I make out of this recipe?

Piramila Ramesh
Piramila Ramesh 2 months ago

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,
