Fruitcakes are the traditional cakes used for Christmas cakes they are iced with marzipan and then sugar dough.

- sultanas, raisins, apricots, dates, figs, prunes, red cherries and
almonds - which are soaked with rum, before they are mixed into a butter
cake mix made from brown sugar, eggs, butter, wholemeal flour and
spices, after baking there is another generous amount of rum poured over
to give that extra flavor. The miniature cakes on cake054 make the
perfect present for that special person in your life.
