Follow Me Foodie: Rethinking Christmas cake (Where to buy it in Vancouver)

By

This is a love it or hate it cake. Images of gross artificial cherries, fake candied fruit, and vibrant green jelly automatically cross my mind when I hear the words Christmas cake. However there are so many versions which vary for each country and region, so don’t write off Christmas cakes until you’ve tried them all.
