A Labour of Love: Rich Cakes at the Sydney Royal

On Saturday Leah spoke to Chira Fernando on the rich fruit cake he entered into this year’s Arts and Crafts competition at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Chira recounted the weeks he spent chopping up currants, cherries, raisins and almonds into exact sizes and then mixing them with the rest of the ingredients to create a magical, delicious fruit cake!

Have a listen to their chat, and check out the pictures of his cake below!
