PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Made to a traditional recipe in Great Britain, this rich fruit cake is smartly presented in a keepsake tin. Originating during the Middle Ages, simnel cake was made for the first Sunday of Lent when the 40-day fast would be relaxed. It is distinguished by layers of almond paste or marzipan, and traditionally has eleven balls of the same paste on the top. Conventionally, the 11 marzipan balls used to decorate the cake symbolised the 12 apostles minus Judas Iscariot, or occasionally 12 are used, representing Jesus and the 11 apostles. This delightful treat is perfect for sharing among friends and family to celebrate Easter.
