Wow! I just learned something new today. There ARE people who actually like fruitcake! sick

I always believed what my grandmother once taught me, "Sonny, there are actually only seven fruitcakes in existence worldwide. And they keep getting recycled and given as second-hand gifts over and over each year. These original seven have been circulating since before I was born."

I've also never made one before. Any secrets to share - chefly, survival guruish, or otherwise?

Thanks!
Fruit cakes also make good weapons. wink

With all the alcohol that apparently is a key ingredient, is there a possibility that fruit cake could also be fuel?

LOL!

A combo of little cake, trail mix and alcohol, the stays good to eat for a long time and can be used as a weapon. Why not?!

My Mam makes Christmas Pudding that keeps at room temps for over a year. I think there is whiskey in it and/or brandy. I'm not sure. It's wonderful with custard over it.
