This is the third year I've made Rose's Fruitcake. It is the first thing requested when the holidays roll around.
I felt a teeny bit smug getting the candied rind, cherries and raisins into the rum for a good long soak back in November. Christmas came and went and the fruit continued to happily slosh about in the rum. This past weekend I finally got around to mixing it up. Once again, Rose's fruitcake was a hit! It never ceases to amaze me how people who profess to detest fruitcake like Rose's version.
