Easter Simnel Cake

Today is Easter Sunday and I am jetsetting, by myself, to China! There, I am meeting my boss and staying with her Chinese family for 11 days.  So, I will be having a little blog break but when I return I will tell you about my travel and foodie eats! Before I leave, I wanted to post my last Easter recipe: a Simnel cake.  This is basically just a fruit cake (my recipe, click here) traditionally covered in marzipan.  I decided to cover mine in Royal icing and top it with Easter eggs and flowers for a Springtime feel. 

I hope all of you have a wonderful Easter and I look forward to blogging again in May.
