By request of many people who’ve written to me from the February posting about how the cake tastes like, well…bit reminiscent of Sara Lee’s Banana Cake, sold frozen in tin pans – but pretty addictive…finally, the recipe of Diana’s cake….not Sara’s.

  1. I prefer the traditional British fruit cake with marzipan and a fondant frosting.

  2. wait, so both recipes are cake frosting and not the cake itself????

    • No.The first one is for the cake – but I had it marked as “Frosting” as well – so you saved the day by pointing out the discrepancy Thank you.
