I made this cake for Christmas last year. I will never make a traditional fruitcake again. This cake was off the chain! My family is already requesting it thus year. The only change that I made was using cake flour and adding bourbon and gran Marnier to the glaze and soaking it for 24 - 48 hours before serving. While it is an expensive cake to make, it is so worth it!
