Christmas Cake

My friend Eri stayed over yesterday, and since it was Christmas Day, I wanted to try Christmas cake. So we went to a patissiere near my house and got one. It looked beautiful (the picture below doesn't do it justice). It tasted even better. Next year I am definitely getting a Christmas cake again.
In general, cakes are so good here. I've missed good cakes since moving to Canada from Ukraine. Japanese cakes are just as tasty as Ukrainian/Russian cakes, but I think they are even better because they use less sugar and butter, and in general seem to be more light and hence more healthy.

This is what the Christmas cake we had looked like:
