Drying fruits was the best-known method of preserving them for the winter season during medieval times and adding them to cakes became popular. During lavish feasts, such as important holidays like Christmas, the fruit-filled, wine-soaked barley loaves were prepared. After people learned how to candy fruits, fruitcakes became even more colorful, decadent, and sweet. Baking fruitcakes soon become a favorite holiday tradition in the Victorian era and quickly spread around the globe.
