Procedure

Soak the dry fruits in brandy and port overnight. Do not soak the cherries.

For the batter- blend the butter and sugar very well till it turns light and fluffy.

Mix flour and baking powder together and add half of it to the butter and sugar mixture. Add one egg to it and beat them together until smooth. Now add the rest of the flour and the other egg and beat again.

Now add spices, lemon juice, browning, salt to the mixture and beat very well.

Cut the cherries and add them to the dry fruit which was soaked in the port and brandy. Delicately fold into the cake batter and then fill up the paper cases.

Put it in the oven and let it bake for 15 minutes and then turn down the temperature to 150 degree centigrade or 300 degree fahrenheit. Bake again for another 15 minutes. When the cake becomes springy, remove from the oven and keep it aside to cool.

Spread the white fondant to 1/8th thickness and cut 12 flowers (one for each cupcake) using flower cutter. Now spread the marzipan and cut out another set of 12 flowers. Attach the marzipan and fondant flowers together and pop onto the cooled cupcakes.
