I've just popped over to Chars' blog and read her post on this topic.
I said the only cake I had baked since getting our new oven last summer was a Christmas cake. I've changed from all gas to a gas hob and electric fan oven. Even though I knew it would probably cook quicker than before, it still caught me out and I felt it over-cooked just a little bit! But, we took it round to our neighbours to celebrate and they all thought it was lovely! Probably me just being picky!
I don't like marzipan so I don't decorate it. It's lovely with a hunk of Cheddar cheese!
If anyone wants the recipe I can post it for you.
