You can leave the cake to mature until Christmas (feed it with more booze now and then) or, if you prefer something a little less rich, eat it straightaway.
Make the cake dairy free by leaving out the butter and greasing the tin with sunflower oil. The cake will be firmer but will still taste fantastic.
Wrap the baked cake in more baking paper, then foil. Keep in a cool, dry place for up to 3 months. Unwrap occasionally to feed it with marsala.
