Oh my goodness...this is so English...my grandfather was English and every year for Christmas we had one of these. Back then I am sure it did not cost that much!

Hugs and love.....

Loved your title it could have been meant for me ;-)) Wow £45 thats a lot of money but i bet it will taste and look amazing. Delia ;-) x

I've made two using Delia's recipe card in Waitrose. Not sure how your ingredients came to £45??? I used organic ingredients as well but bought my own, not the Delia ready-made packs. Is it those that are so expensive? I worked my ingredients to £15 then yet to buy marzipan and icing, maybe another £5?
It smells yummy though!

Wow, that's alot of money but it sure is a pretty cake. With regards to your previous post, I bring most of my geraniums in and I have about 12! I have nowhere really to put them so they line the windowsills upstairs.
