Can anyone tell me the best place to buy a small, cheap bottle of Brandy for my Christmas cake? It doesn't have to be drinkable!
Also I have a recipe that requires a band of corrugated cardboard to be tied outside of the tin, could I use brown paper or newspaper instead?

The Sainsbury's own brandy actually made my eyes run just from the fumes, however the good stuff is wasted flavouring a cake

As this is a Christmas cake thread, I thought I might also ask for a little bit of advice. I am making hampers this year for pressies and have been making jams and chutneys for the last three weeks. I saw a site on the internet that suggested that you could make a mini xmas cake in a small baked bean tin. I thought this would be a good idea because some of the people I am making hampers for are on their own. Has anyone tried anything like this (or am I the only insane one!) or does anyone have any suggestions of how to make a little cake without going to a major expense buying specialist tins?
