[Comments] (4) : Is it a good idea to make one of those English Christmas fruitcakes? They look really good, but they also look like they might explode at any minute.

I dunno, you made non-alcoholic non-caffeinated tiramisu. I'm not sure I could trust you with a fruitcake recipe unless you promised to use all the rum you could possibly afford.

Do you mean the Christmas puddings you cover with brandy and set fire to, if you're talking about explosions? Yes, it's a good idea, if so, although I'm afraid I can't offer any insider knowledge about making them.

I'm interested in making the puddings as well, but at the moment I was thinking of the cakes, which I've never seen. My mother made a flammable pudding last year for Christmas, and I also had some at an Australian Christmas party in July. But the cakes are a mystery, and I tend to think that anything mysterious is bound to explode.
