I made my first a few years ago. I always use Royal Icing on a Christmas Cake, as fondant is too soft and would need to be piped. Make sure that you buy your Royal Icing in sheet form, this is SO much easier. You can place your cake on top of the sheet and carefully cut round it with a knife so you get the perfect shape for the top of your cake.Don't forget to smooth a little marmalade or apricot jam on it before you place it on your cake, this will help it "stick". A little tip for your next one! Soak the dried fruit in either pure orange juice or brandy for a week before you put it in the mixture, it not only plumps it up but makes it lovely and juicy. Good luck.
