Impossibly Good Fruitcake Miniatures

cathy tate


I have never liked fruitcake even though my mother would give me one every year! I decided to try to come up with a recipe that would incorporate the fruitcake idea into a more edible cake-like compotent for an appetizer for my Christmas parties. This seems impossible but true - a fruitcake that tastes very good!
