Alternative Christmas Cake

Whilst staying with family this Christmas I sampled some excellent ‘alternative Christmas cake’. In place of traditional Christmas cake (brown, fruity, boozy, marzipan and icing – two of which at least I am not a fan of) we had a lovely sponge cake, flavoured with mixed spice and additional cinnamon, with an orange buttercream filling and topping, covered over with fondant icing then decorated with edible glitter.

It was rather nice. Blogged to aid my failing memory.
