Golden and seedless raisins.

There should have been currants, too, but my store didn't have them.

Add flour to coat fruit.

This keeps the fruit from clumping when it is combined with the batter

Flour-coated raisins.

Like a light dusting of snow!

Fruitcake mix and candied red cherries.

These are coated with flour like the raisins were.

Fruit and batter combined.

So good, it seems a shame to bake it!

Little baby fruitcakes.

Baked in muffin tins with holly-decorated muffin/cupcake liners.

Note: The batter in the muffin papers, as shown, is too much. I had to remove some of it so each muffin paper was 2/3 full. When I doused the baked cakes in rum, they separated from their papers, so there's no need to use pretty ones for baking. I set the finished cakes into fresh, dry decorative muffin papers and wrapped them in plastic wrap.

All ready!

All decked out in fresh muffin papers and adorned with candied cherry halves, attached with corn syrup.

Note: The recipe makes about 36 muffins, I believe.

Wrapped and ready to go.

They're not so bad, after all
