Cognac Fruit Cake with Chocolate Frosting


I made this cake specially for my dear old friend, who has a sweet tooth but can't bake. Her birthday is round the corner and I thought this would be a nice treat for her and her family.


The rim of candies in crunchy shells were Hershey's special dark chocolate. They helped to complete the look.

You can find the cake recipe in a previous posting.

Thanks for all your kind words! I am going to try making a Rum Fruit Cake the next time. But first, I have to get some more mixed fruits and soaked them for another week. Till then!

Pamela, the test is fun! Turns out that I am like a Lemon Cake! "... strong, courageous, confident and not cowed down by any situation..." ;p
