I have made my own version of a simnel cake using an Irish boiled fruit cake recipe and covering the top with a layer of apricot jam and golden marzipan when the cake was cold.
I decorated with marzipan eggs and grilled the top of the cake to brown.
The cake is lovely and moist and improves with keeping getting stickier and more succulent!
It is very easy to make and very easy to eat!
Did you see the beautiful full moon last week at the end of March? It was a beautiful clear orb in the sky and the limitations of my camera doesn't do it justice. Did you know that the March full moon is also known as the full worm, full crow, full crust, full sap, Lenten moon, seed moon and chaste moon. I found this information from the moon calender that can be found here and here.
