Decorated fruit cake

Hello, I am back! The reason why fionainthekitchen has been so quiet for so long is because... well, fiona is not in the kitchen much recently. I am after all a student, so cut me some slack guys!
And here goes, just something to stop those withdrawal symptoms that I experience when i don't get my hands dirty for a month or more. Those symptoms include sinking further into misery by going through amazing bakers' blogs and then staring at recipes pathetically. Pathetic.

So it was Good Friday and the cousins invited us over for a little get together. And to know more about Christianity and Jesus. I must admit that I no longer abhor it like I used to and somehow or other, certain things start to make sense.
But that's beside the point. I was really touched at how my simple cake could bring so much joy to everyone. And even more humbled when they said birthday cakes should be ordered from me. And those aren't my cousins, they are my cousins' kids. I loved how they got so excited over the cake.

And here's the peek inside. I was honestly disappointed in this cake though. Firstly, I over-roasted the sliced almonds at the side (phone call). Then I forgot my butter. So the cake tasted kinda off. Lastly, I can't cut kiwi. So, well, DO BETTER NEXT TIME NANA.

But I think I did a good job of decorating it, given my limited artistic ability.
