      Yeah, I know ~ The Irish would probably say I messed up royally with my substitutions for this cake, but the done deal tasted just fine! I used marschino cherries instead of candied ones, then used almost a cup of finely chopped dried fruits instead of the candied (AND a couple Tbsp of my own dried orange peel)! I was very pleased with the final cake & would definitely make it again! [Made & reviewed as a bonus recipe in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #14, Mar 08]
