It is interesting to note that it gets harder and harder to buy Glace Fruits each year. I knew there would be none here so asked Zoe to get them at David Jones food hall but even there they didn't have the full range. I don't think the cake works nearly as well without them, although I think when I made one for a birthday party in April I substituted Apricot Jam and it turned out all right.
Here is my recipe, have a try it is worth it. I am making three this year, one for the raffle, one for Peter's mother and one for us.
