Today is Queen Elizabeth’s birthday. Even before the big day, the news came out about her cake. Instead of the traditional fruitcake, the cake is an orange drizzle sponge.
What? How can that be?
I learned about the traditional English Christmas and holiday cake when I taught middle school in Sydney, Australia. My assignment was to demonstrate how to make a Christmas cake for my students, then they would make them. Of course, I had to look up what an English fruitcake is.
