I have made this cake for Christmas and it's fantastic, especially if you make the glaceed fruits. Apricots are not in season, do I make glaceed figs, clementines, kumquats, grapes, chestnuts and red currants. The recipe is very accurate but allow a day to make this cake because all the steps take time.

I made this recipe for New Year's Eve and loved it! Everything is from scratch from the vanilla bean to the homemade mincemeat. It tasted great and looked very pretty. It is a great winter-time cake. I highly recommend this recipe.
The recipe says "8 oz butter (2 sticks)" - but 8 oz is one stick. Has anyone made this cake? Is it one stick of butter or two?
