Did you know Bonne Mamans Apricot Conserve can be used to apply icing to your showstopper Christmas Cake, acting as a deliciously sweet and fruity ‘adhesive’… Icing can be done a few weeks ahead so now’s the time to stock up! For a flawless finish to your Christmas Cake gently warm the Apricot Conserve with a splash of water, brush a thin layer all over the sides and on top of the cake before carefully applying a rolled out layer of marzipan; then add the royal icing over the top, et voila!
