  5. Coat flour on the fruits so that they don't sink to the bottom while baking. Add the candied mango cuts too.
  6. To prepare the caramel, heat the sugar with 1 tbsp water and wait until the sugar is melted. Once the sugar has melted add 1/4 cup water carefully . Be careful while adding water as the water may splash, then bring to boil again. Cool this mixture and keep aside.
  7. Now fold in the flour mix to the egg mix. Mix till it's well incorporated. Add the caramel and fruits and candied fruits and mix well.
  8. At this point add the drained orange juice to meet the right consistency.
  9. Grease a bundt cake pan with butter and pour this mixture into the pan and bake for 30 minutes or till done. While the cake is cooling prepare your icing.
  10. For the icing, heat the sugar, butter, cream and bring it to a boil.
  11. Take it off heat and add the chocolate chips and mix well. Pour this after it's at room temperature on the cake and top it with some white chocolate chips.
