Fruitcake didn't turn out as deep as I wanted

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I made a fruitcake and wasn't as deep as I wanted, I don't want to bin it, can i just layer the cake ? Maybe sandwich it together?Will it just stick together? Sounds a silly question
Thanks

You will cover it with marzipan before anything else, right?

Layer it with marzipan using boiled jam as stickum.

Fruitcake is traditionally 2.5"-3" in depth. Add 1/4'-1/2" marzipan plus 1/2" sugarpaste .... How deep is "deep" ?

Layer it with marzipan in the middle. Finish it as usual.

If it's only a little bit too shallow, I've put a drum the same size under it and iced that with it (ie cake and drum, all in one go)... adds another quarter inch to the height!
Inside this fat body, there's a thin woman screaming to get out...... but I can usually shut her up with chocolate!
