Possibly this could be the recipe of one of the Royal wedding cake. And all the ingredients can be explained by Foodpairing.

Each branch is a category. The closer to the middle the better the match. So chocolate and tamarind mmmmh. Not sure if the brandy is whisky and if the brand is the right one :) Cherries and currants also fit in the tree.

Ingredients for the Fruit Cake:

1 1/2 cups candied cherries
2 cups golden raisins
2 cups dark raisins, preferably Thompson
1 1/4 cups mixed candied citrus peel
2/3 cup chopped crystallized ginger
1/2 cup dried currants
3 tablespoons molasses
3 tablespoons bitter orange marmalade
1 teaspoon tamarind concentrate
finely grated zest of 1 organic orange
finely grated zest of 1 organic lemon
1 heaped tablespoon apple pie spice
6 tablespoons brandy, plus 3 tablespoons to feed the cake
1 cup walnuts
1/3 cup blanched almonds
1 1/4 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, plus more for the pan
