If you remember, a few years ago using my MIL's Fruitcake Recipe, I ended up with 14 fruitcakes. Then I virtually had to ask people if they liked fruitcake in order to find them all homes!
It ended up being a "feel good" for me, seeing them smile and tell me how much they enjoyed it.
Saturday, I did just that, although I ended up with only 13. Running into the same issues as I have in the past, I had to transfer all the cake batter into a larger bowl then add all the dried fruit and nuts.
There was just sooooo much batter and being so thick and heavy, stirring was difficult.
Monday, I added rum to the cheesecloth and then re-wrapped each one in it's cheesecloth, plastic wrap, followed by foil. For all intents and purposes, they should sit three months. However, I think they'll be good knowing Christmas is still two weeks away. They smelled delicious, which actually made the clean-up kind of pleasant.
just seeing, saying, and sharing...
