If your Christmas cake simply must have icing, try this easy finish. Put the Festive fruit and nut cake on a plate or cake stand. Sift 140g/5oz icing sugar into a bowl, then stir in egg white or cold water, a little at a time, until you have a smooth icing that drizzles easily from the tip of a dessert spoon. Drizzle over the top of the cake, then leave to set for an hour.
