This recipe was quite a bit of work for nothing. The cakes turned out extremely dry and could not be eaten without the real whipped cream I made to save dessert for this dinner for six. Rest assured I will not make these next Christmas!!

These mini Christmas Cakes look fantastic! I used brandy (didn't have any rum). My family said they were delicious (I'm gluten-free so couldn't taste them). I've made some as little gifts for my workmates-my youngest daughter is going to come in and give them out for me. I've already started making another batch. The presentation with the 'flower' on top looks great. I think this is a no fail recipe and will become a Christmas regular for us. Thanks Kookaburra for a great recipe :)

These are absolutely fantastic.I recommend soaking them for longer and feeding them frequently with your favourite alcohol. I used brandy rather than rum as that is what I had in the house. I have a small convection oven which tends to cook things quickly so I set the time for 35 minutes and just left the cakes in the oven. This worked perfectly.

Kooka, these are lovely little Christmas Cakes. Perfect for my cup cake tree. I ended up soaking the fruit for about 5 days and everytime I walked past I added more rum. Probably doubled the amount but was careful that the mixture wasn't too wet before cooking. I was also late in making them (made them about one week before Christmas) and it didn't matter one little bit to the flavour. I'm so pleased I chose these over a traditional Christmas Cake as they are an ideal size and look fantastic. Will definitely be making these again next year.
