I can't eat it, can't get past the fruit that looks like it came from a different planet!
I tried it once and now I'll use a gifted fruitcake for a door stop. Terrible tasting stuff.
UGH! I tried it once. I have an issue just getting past the smell of it. My mother-in-law like it, though. But she has questionable tastes.
Explanation of Fruitcake:
(Fruitcake is a cake made with chopped candied fruit and/or dried fruit, nuts, and spices, and soaked in spirits)
Who's gonna eat that for goodness's sake ???? !!! I look at the pic and i feel i can't eat anything for few days straight!!! Just read the explanation, it shakes me!!!
We have a joke in my family. When the kids were younger I told them that if they ever catch me eating a fruitcake or wearing gold shoes, it means their mother has dementia or is having a psychotic episode. So, that's their cue to render me some help.
I like Dark Fruitcake. It is moist (assuming you eat it fresh) and tasty. The light fruitcake, (as pictured by Matt Radiance) is dry and tasteless. Bring me a fresh dark fruitcake anyday!
Not gunna lie, I love fruitcake, it was one of my fave treats that my mum would buy sometimes :D
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE baking more then anything. But before my grandparents 50th anniversary, my grandma asked me to bake a cake. So I was extremely excited to help. Then I found out it was fruit cake mushing canned, dried fruit into a bowl. When I was baking it it didn't seem that bad. But then came the anniversary and I didn't want to make my grandparents feel bad so I took a piece of fruit cake and boy oh boy. I couldn't believe I baked something so disgusting LOL.
I am one of them
I only eat Fruit cakes that look like this though
Never 😝 Yuck. Not even a 10 gallon barrel of shine would make that cake look or taste good.
I have never tried it! I probably will never.
Rooster try Collins street bakery in Corsicans Tx they only sell mail order its the best. Fruit cake in the world I eat all the time
I love fruitcake, but actually only those that are made without the fruits known as "nuts."
And that means I have to make my own. I first made it about 40 years ago from a recipe I found in a cookbook and just made it without the nuts.
Rave reviews from my friends.
