Press into a cling wrap lined 500 gram loaf tin and refrigerate overnight if possible. Turn out onto a serving plate and remove cling wrap. Place icing ingredients except icing sugar in a bowel and melt. Add icing sugar and beat in well - spread over loaf and mark with a fork - serve sliced - decorate with extra cherries if required or nuts such as pecan halves.
A tot of brandy, rum or whiskey may be added with the melted butter and syrup - this makes it an ideal end to a special meal.
You may serve it with whipped cream or even a good ice cream but be warned it is very rich.
