Cheat's Christmas Cake

I'm a working mum, right?  So I don't call what I've done, cheating.  More like thinking smart.  Here's my Christmas cake: I bought the fruit-cake, marzipan and icing.  And assembled them.  A very quick way of making a Christmas cake!

If you're a student, you may not be thinking of buying or making a Christmas cake.  However, should you feel tempted, this does at least save lots of time and effort.  You do need a rolling pin, a bit of icing sugar, and a small quantity of marmalade or apricot jam to make the marzipan adhere to the cake.
