  • Adding Tutti frutti and walnut is totally optional. You can use any other dry fruit/ nut or just can skip it.
  • If you want you can dust with confectioner's sugar, before serving the cake. I didn't do it though.
  • While baking the cake formed a dome, so I just levelled it off and turned upside down to display the tutti frutti side.
  • Baking time varies with the type of pan. for 9" round pan it took around 25 minutes, for  9*13 it will take around 40 minutes.
