I decide to made the batter in two 8"inch round pans
Preheat the oven 20 minutes before baking at 350f.
toasted the walnuts/ prepared the apples and sprinkled some lemon juice on top of the apples the orange zest and set aside p.s. forgot to take a picture of the roasted walnuts and chopped the golden  raisins / dark raisins and some glace  cherries into very small and soaked in hot water...
make the batter
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powered, baking soda, salt and cinnamon then added the dried fruit /walnuts and folded in with a spatula..
add the apple mixture in and folded in with a spatula..
Divided the batter in the two 8"inch pans with parchment paper cake strips , about 880 grams each.. and bake at 350f. for 40-50 minutes....
cooled on rack for 10 minutes and brushed on the dark rum..and before the final frosting made some plain syrup and brushed it on both  cakes again.
Put the cakes in plastic bags and in the refrigerated for on 1 1/2 days....
made the Dreamy Creamy White Chocolate Frosting for the elegant touch....
did the first spread and the middle and a bit of the sides and cut some of the top after and into the freezer for 30 minutes..
second layer and into the freezer for 30 minutes again...
 final: I toke it out of the freezer and smooth it out and designed it on the top..
 very last final , made fondant and made two different colored and designs..
Beautiful and delicious!!!
