This cake is recipe is really good. the only snag it creates is that even after putting in the refrigerator to tighten it up, it's painful to cut into neat slices. well, most fruit cakes are but this is gluey. so either you have to cut it soon after you take it out of the refrigerator or just forget this recipe altogether. my aunt and mum complained you feel sleepy after eating it; a voluminous sherry and rum quota of course.
