If you want to get ahead . . . make a hat box!

Let's Talk - - LET’S BAKE -

This recipe is for a fairly stan­dard sized Christ­mas cake but in next month’s col­umn I will show­ing you how to make this el­e­gant Christ­mas ‘hat box’ cake.

If you would like to make this project you will need to make the same quan­tity of mix­ture but use it to fill 2 x 15cm (6ins) round tins, re­duc­ing the cook­ing time to about three hours. These cakes will then be stacked one on top of each other with a lit­tle apri­cot jam in the mid­dle to make one taller cake, or if like me you have an ex­tra tall ‘pan­netone’ tin you can use this in­stead and ad­just the cook­ing time ac­cord­ingly.

Next month, Kate will show you how to trans­form your cake into a stun­ning Christ­mas cen­tre­piece.
