Advent Calendar – December 14 - Yay for Fruitcake!
Me mixing up a batch of fruitcakes in 2009
I didn't grow up around fruitcake making but there was always some around. I liked the dark kind not the light, blah type. I have been making fruitcake for years now. Sometimes I don't get it in the mail in time and we end up eating fruitcake through the winter and into spring. You can see from the large bottle of rum that I not only soak it in spirits but add some in the mixing. People have already been requesting cakes so I should get started. Last year I started in November. This year I'm spending so much time doing posts on Christmas memories that I am not making them this year. Or maybe the memory will be 2010 - the year I did blog posts.
