Jules, I'd love a copy of your recipe! I've never heard of a chocolate fruitcake before and am intrigued. Fi also sent me her recipe (thank you!) and maybe this will be the year of the fruitcake sampler Christmas party at my house!

Okay, I thought of another fruitcake-newbie question.... What is the purpose of covering the cake in marzipan before the fondant? Is it for extra flavor, or to keep the fondant neat, or what? Do you use plain fondant, or do you flavor it with something?

Thanks!!

Deanna, the marzipan stops the dark juiciness of the cake bleeding through into the icing. If you really object to marzipan, you can do a double fondant layer instead.

Edited to say: need your email address for the recipe thumbs_up.gif

Thanks for explaining that! That makes sense. I like marzipan but didn't know if it was required or not. Here's my address:

Please, Bonjovibabe, may I have that recipe, too? I currently use a mix of about 3 different recipes (yes, all in together! icon_confused.gif ), but I love the sound of Drambuie in the cake - It's DH's favourite tipple.

My email is cookieskitchen@gmail.com

Thanks, in advance!

Feefs, Jules and Bon Jovi:

NO ONE in my house likes fruitcake....EXCEPT me! I would love to have your recipes! I have friends that are from South Africa and I would like to give them a fruitcake this year. I always give them a tray of my candy, but, I would like to do something that would make me "stretch" myself. Is it too late to do the fruitcakes?

Could you guys send your recipes to me? Especially the CHOCOLATE fruitcake! My e-mail is bethola@mac.com. I understand if they are SECRET, though!
