108/365 – Simnel Cake

I made my first Simnel cake today.  I haven’t made one before because  of the whole nut/marzipan issue, but now that we’ve tried almonds on the boy, marzipan is firmly back on the list.

It always amazes me that you can go from a pile of quite yummy ingredients

to something that looks, frankly, vile

(on this occasion) via a mid-cake layer of marzipan

and a bit more vile lookingness

to this


which looks really quite yummy (and will look even better tomorrow with it’s marzipan topping – pic to follow!).
