History of Fruit Cake
by: Michelle (editor)

Hi June,

I have always believed the origin of fruit cake to be English. Having grown up in Australia, I am very familiar with the style of cake. It has always been a favorite at Australian weddings too.

Here is an interesting article that gives a more in-depth history.
