“A delicious single serve fruit & nut cake treat, perfect for gatherings or to just have on hand for a nice cuppa. They keep for a long time in an air tight container and also make a lovely gift on a nice plate done up with cellophane and ribbon. Also nice to decorate the tops with a cherry or nuts.”
