Wedding Cakes

Hello Olive,

You can substitute the alcohol in the rich fruitcake with fruit juice such as apple, grape or orange juice when you make the cake and I would not ‘feed’ it.

The cake will not last as long because the alcohol helps preserve it but if you have any that you would like to keep you could freeze it.

I would make it a couple of weeks before the wedding.

Here is the link to the scaling up page.

I hope that helps, best wishes,
