Can someone advise me IF there is anywhere in Lima that English/European/Westerner style Christmas fruit cakes are imported/made/sold, please? Or even a "traditional"plum pudding ?
I am not a panetone cake fan and crave these items for Christmas...if possible.

Legend has it that they were produced in Europe in the early 1900's and shipped in "tins" to customers in Europe and USA only. Most were never opened and consumed and nowadays's they are used solely for " re gifting" at Christmas time between relatives who are not talking to each other. Some fruitcakes are rumored to have been in the same family for generations.
