I'd already been buying dried fruits to use: cherries, dates, apricots, golden raisins, black raisins, prunes, and pineapple. They're all chopped up now and marinating happily in the whole bottle of booze. These are going to be "spirited" cakes! The nuts I'm using (almonds, pecans, and walnuts) won't get added until the last minute. After all, nobody wants soggy nuts!
