This is supposed to be the only cake that Queen Elizabeth cooks. She doesn't do this often and when she does it's for a fund raiser. I'm sure it is a good draw in Buckingham Palace. The story goes that she used to provide the recipe with the cake to increase sales. See what you think. It looks good and sounds good. I will give it a try.
