  Fruitcake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fruitcake is a heavy cake made of dried or candied fruits and nuts that are soaked in brandy or rum, often used in the celebration of weddings and Christmas.
In the Middle Ages, honey, spices, and preserved fruits were added and the name fruitcake was first used.
The cakes are saturated with liqueurs or brandy, and covered in powdered sugar, both of which prevent mold.
