For some reason I am into cakes nowadays, the enjoyment gulping the cake down is just out standing. I just suddenly got a sweet tooth I guess. Anyways this helens whole fruit cake is just heavely in both texture and taste. An easy desserts recipe where it can be served at any party and or occasion. Don`t give a second thought about your guests as I am sure they will blindly give you 100 out 100 for scores on anything that is related to this easy desserts helens whole fruit cake recipe.
