Looking at your cake CC I am very pleased that I put the fruit in to soak last night.  I was planning on taking this away but perhaps we will eat this one and I'll make another 2-3 to take away.

Beautiful looking cake CC. I will post a photo of mine but not as lovely as yours.   I made it in a baguette tin thinking I might have just a small slice at a time. Didn't work out as head 2 slices to check that it was ok.  :(
