    Recipe Baroness's Note:

    This is the best recipe for the traditional Christmas cake that looks like a tree log. It has over the years won many awards for me in food competitions, however it is a very time consuming recipe. What's that old saying? Good things come to those who wait? ...or in this instance those that take their time to create!
