Farmhouse Fruit Cake with a Marzipan Layer Inside

I have never made a Simnel cake, but I like the idea of having a layer of marzipan running through a fruit cake, so I decided that for my cake this week I would do just this. I also decided to opt for a more traditional farmhouse style fruit cake, instead of a boiled one or a Christmas cake type one.

I have never made my own marzipan before, but figured with this being a bake along to the GBBO and the fact that I chose the easier category really, I thought now would be the time to make it. Having googled marzipan recipes, it didn’t actually look that hard, so I gave it a try.
