Lucille’s Christmas Icebox Fruit Cake


  • 1 box Spice cake mix (Bake as directed)
  • 1/2 cup Candied green cherries
  • 1/2 cup Candied red cherries
  • 4 cups mixed fruit
  • 1 pkg. (8oz.) chopped dates
  • 2& 1/2 cups raisins
  • 4 & 1/2 cups chopped pecans
  • Pkg. fluffy white icing mix ( Betty Crocker) Mix as directed.


Crumble cake into fruit, nut mixture. Add icing. Mix. Pack into loaf pans and refrigerate.

This is a very old recipe. I think that the marshmallow cream that is used in making fudge would work, as well.

About Peggy

Peggy Chaney was best known as cook and co-owner of Peggy's Restaurant in Kings Mountain, North Carolina (which she and her sister, Loretta, ran for over two decades). You can find her pages on Google+, Twitter and Facebook. One of eleven siblings, she was the daughter of a Baptist preacher, and was well remembered for her kind spirit and regard for others. Her genuine warmth and grace is sorely missed.
