Yes, I know Christmas cake should be absolutely, positively fruit cake!
No, not that kind of surprise!
This blog post is for those who dare to break the fruit cake tradition and prefer a butter cake for a Christmas cake. I think if you are going to have a variation of the traditional furit cake, then do it brilliantly. Perhaps not as outrageously as Kathy Selden ( Debbie Reynolds) surprised Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) in the 1952 movie, Singin'in the Rain in the photo above, but I found some amazing surprise Christmas cakes by some skilled bakers. The following images speak for themselves - beautiful cakes and when they are cut, they reveal a Christmas themed surprise.
