This dry fruit and nuts cake is typical in my country for spring time, usually we welcome this season with cake to thanks the trees for their goods and to bless their fruits, "Tu-B-Svat" is the name of this Holiday, the tree's holiday and the first sign for the summer
Here is still winter and still snowing so I thought maybe if I'll bake this cake, the spring will came also :-)
