************************************

 This cake has been used in my family for 5 generations and is absolutely delicious!  I hope you enjoy making it and eating it even more.  It should be made about 6 - 8 weeks ahead of Christmas, so that it has time to age.  I don't put any alcohol in it at all. Once cooled, I wrap it in tin foil tightly and place in a plastic bag in a cool place till Christmas Eve - my mouth waters even now!!
