Let the Fruit Cake Begin
Who's making fruitcake this year? Last year the Heavenly Cake Bakers made Rose's Fruitcake Wreath. Honestly, I never in a million years thought anyone in my family would like this cake, let alone, love it. They
constantly snitched those wrapped and resting in rum. I'm not certain any of the fruitcakes made it to Christmas.
There was much merriment when I announced I was off to buy candied fruit. That jar doesn't look like much, most of the pretty cherries are underneath the lemon and orange peel. I have no idea why I find the daily turning of the jar fun, but I do! And if you've never read Joe Pastry's tale of his father's annual fruitcake, it's a delight.
