Gates Simnel Apostle Cake is a light and fruity cake with nutty marzipan and 11 balls on top.

A cake which is easily distinguished by the marzipan layers and “eggs” on top which is made from the same marzipan and lightly browned under the grill for colour.

This was formally eaten in the pre Easter period in England, Ireland and some other countries but soon became a traditional Easter Sunday cake. With the 11 balls on top representing the 11 faithful disciples, this is the perfect centre piece for your Easter celebrations.
