      I have made this cake many times. It is wonderful. Very moist and delicious. It is even better with just a light glaze. Always a winner.

      I have made this fruitcake many times and always to rave reviews (especially from people who don't like fruitcake) but...I don'tuse fruit cocktail, just marachino cherries (2 small jars- no juice) and when I mix the cakes, I add 1 cup raisins, 1 cup walnuts, 1 cup pecans, and 1 cup coconut. It's rich but oh so tasty! With all that added, I never frost it.
