It's a shame that fruitcake as a species gets such a bad rap. With its two key ingredients--rum and butter--it ought to be a hit. This recipe includes dried cherries, mango, cranberries, and currants soaked in rum overnight (a week or a month or more is even better). After it's baked, it ages in cheesecloth with additional splashes of rum. Let it ripen for 10 weeks for best flavor.
