    My mom soaks her fruits for an entire year in cherry brandy and every time she used to cut a slice of it, she would pour rum over it. The cake does not have to be stored in the refrigerator for 3 months; it will last longer than 3 months but I think it depends a lot on your fruits as well. Nice attempt for a first timer, Kwesi. Needs to be a little blacker, but not bad at all.
