Hi angelsnaps 1044145 - You will need to reserve enough of the nut and fruit mixture to cover the top of your cake. The rest will go into the batter. Hope this helps clarify things. -Editors of RecipeLion

The recipe title caught my eye...but does not seem easy to follow...the flour, brn sugar are also reserved for decoration? I don't get it....step 1 says to reserve some of it? Yes, a pic would be nice...will not try this one....

PICTURES!! Pictures, pictures, pictures! We eat with our eyes first. How do I even know I would like it if I don't want to try it? If I don't like the way it looks, I DEFINITELY won't try to make it.

You say 'work of art' cake. Then don't supply a photo?

The instructions seem some what incomplete. It would be difficult for a novice cook to picture this.

The natural joices in the friut will also moisten the cake. Butter or oil isn't really needed in recipes like this one.
