Just doing my online shop and getting the Christmas cake stuff, first time I have made one, could anyone please tell me what sherry I need to buy, there are many options, fino seems to be the cheapest! :-D

For a Christmas cake I would either use brandy or a sweet dark sherry - Nigella recommends Pedro Ximenez (sp, can't remember!) which smells like Christmas-in-a-bottle.

I think fino could be too dry for Christmas cake ....

hope it turns out well.

I'd go for a cheap little bottle of own-brand whiskey or brandy rather than sherry. Agree fino is too dry.
