The fruitcake was made by British company Huntley & Palmers, which shipped tinned cakes all around the world in the early 1900s. The company was founded in Reading 1822, and by 1900 Huntley & Palmers was the biggest biscuit factory in the world with its own railway system connecting to the Great Western Railway.


Fancy to have a cup of tea with a slice of 100-year-old cake?
