I'm no fan of fruitcake, with its tongue-numbingly sweet raisins, sultanas, currents (yew, yeew and yeeew!), glacé cherries, apricots and pineapples (yuck, yuck and yuck). Brandy is the only saving grace in this onslaught of sugar, so much so I added twice as much Brandy and an equal slug of Kirsch to hopefully drown out the sweetness and leave the mix to macerate over the weekend. I also added more pineapples and angelica to brighten up the dull appearance of the cake.
