My mother, Jannes Lawrence, was one of those people who wrote recipes on a scrap of paper whenever she tasted something good. I inherited her recipe box and in that box, are a ton of scraps of paper to sort through. This fruit cocktail cake was written in the 60's on a campaign brochure for George Romney, Mitt Romney's dad. (The 43rd Governor of Michigan from 1963 to 1969.) An oldie but goodie recipe.
