Crush together:
1 box graham crackers
1 large box vanilla wafers

1 lb. black walnuts

1/2 lb. cashews
1 lb. brazil nuts

3- 1lb. cans of chopped up mixed fruit (orange, pineapple, cherries, combine fruit for fruit cakes)
1 box dark seedless raisins
1 box white seedless raisins
1 box currents

Mix all together. Then put a large bag minature marshmellows in and mix. After all is mixed together, whip 1 pt. of whipping cream. Whip until it stands in a peak. Add 1/2 c. sugar, 3 T. vanilla, melt 1/2 lb. margarine. Pour cream on butter. Then pour over all other mixtures. If this is too stiff, add enough evaporated milk to make it soft enough to stick together good. Then line a cake pan with wax paper. Place thin slice candied fruit, pineapple, red or green cherries, or any kind of candied fruit around the bottom and sides of pan. Pack mixture into pan. Pack tightly using small amount at a time. Leave in pan or pans for several days. Keep in refrigerator or you can put in freezer.
