Fruity Fruit Cake

Before the Christmas, I was requested by a friend to make a tray of fruit cake and wrap it as little small gifts. I really have no idea what fruit cake recipe to use as there are so many version of fruit cake recipe. Finally, I used a traditional fruit cake recipe from Nigella Lawson. I managed to buy some natural dried fruits from the market and I think natural sweet would be better than artificial sweetness. Furthermore, I reduced the sugar from the original recipe and the cake turn out just nice. The cake was really chewy with the natural sweetness and the cake crumbs wasn't too sweet and buttery. You could see from the picture the dried fruits are more than the cake crumbs which was the purpose of just to bring all the drieds fruits combine together. I baked a tray and finally I'd cut into even size of 49 pieces.

Hi Grace,
Even though I don't like Fruit Cakes, but yours look very nice. You are very detailed with all those wrappings. I like the box. Can I have one please? ;)

Hi Grace,
I love fruit cakes and yours looks delicious. Every time I baked or steamed one, when I cut it it's crumbly. Any idea what's wrong? BTW, did you chopped up the fruits?

Hi delia,
Thanks for dropping at my blog. I didn't chop up the fruits. You might need a serrated knife to portion the fruit cake just like sawing the wood gently.
