Simnel cake

A very lovely lady from the parish brought this to our door on Holy Saturday. I had heard about Simnel cake as a lovely tradition here in England. They're usually baked for Mothering Sunday which is always during Lent here (not Mother's Day in May like the US). It's like a Christmas cake - rich, nuts, raisins inside - with marzipan on top.
