I have found a recipe for Simnel Cake, which my Easter Guests have said they would appreciate eating. I hate marzipan, so I'll be giving it a miss. Anyway, what I can't find is answers to two questions: 1. How long in advance it's cooked, 2. Whether you need to 'feed' it like you do a Christmas Cake, or whether the feeding would spoil the layer of marzipan through the middle. Can any arrse cooks advise please?
