The rich aroma of fruit cake–baking conjures up memories of Christmas and exciting special occasions. Rich fruit cake keeps for months wrapped and stored in a cool, dry place and is best made well ahead to allow the flavour to ripen. Light fruit cakes suit any occasion and many people prefer them to the very rich ones. They keep for up to 3 weeks when stored wrapped in an airtight container.

Boiled Fruit Cake is mixed using a particularly easy method and is excellent for families who love to have fruit cake at any time. It may be kept for 2 weeks in an airtight container.
