This is a fantastic mixed fruitcake. I usually start making these in October for Xmas presents. Sometimes I make them in mini pans too. Absolutly delicious and a welcome gift. As they are sitting I add more rum to the soaked cheesecloth about every week to keep them moist. I found this recipe in a Montreal newspaper (The Gazette) and have use it for 20 years now. Time does not include overnight marinating time.
