This is my absolute favourite cake for the Christmas holidays. I would always look forward to this season just to get a piece of this cake. The longer the fruit sits in the alcohol the better is tastes, minimum 2 weeks, maximum 3 months. As for the cake, the longer it sits there better it tastes! But make sure you have it wrapped properly if you want to leave it sitting for a long time. Make at few days ahead of serving for good measure. Prep time is minimum time required for fruit to soak.
