so then i said this:

"can't you just squish it back together for the most part? i don't think the preserves would hurt a thing and would help glue but i am so not a fruit cake expert -- i have made them but it's not my forte -- hope others will chime in for you"

It probably cracked while it was rising during baking but that doesn't mean it's going to break apart. Sometimes they just get cracked on the top surface. I'd go ahead and take ti out of the pan and see what you're working with, Jam won't help but it probably won't hurt either.
