Hi, I want to make a fruit cake for dil's baby shower as I'm going to be away and will have to deliver it a couple of weeks in advance, (hence it can't be a sponge cake) question is how far ahead can it be iced and decorated? I have only ever made and iced a fruit cake at Christmas, covering the cake with marzipan and icing it a couple of days apart and in the week running up to Christmas. I know I need to put marzipan on two days ahead of the icing to allow it to dry out. Also, Royal icing or fondant? Thanks 😉
Son's fiancee hates us - we're going to family therapy
My dilemma is that she's a slob - how to discuss with her?
A level of gravitas and decorum has been lost - don't think she's a naive player
