I have made this 3-4 times over a course of 5 years, I dont know why so long but I always want the reason I make it to be special.
I made it for my sons the first time and they absolutely loved it, I believe it was Easter it was their favorite, they love fruity cakes. Well, I made it several other times since and everyone always thought it was wonderful.
