I don’t normally do this, but I wanted to confirm, for those out there who have yet to make their fruitcakes (and who have invested upwards of fifty bucks in fruit and booze), that the formula I put up does indeed produce some very fine cakes. I never doubted it for a second of course. I just had nothing to do this evening and felt like typing. Just make sure your layer pans are indeed nine by two inches tall.
I made mine today. Right now they’re curing, and I hope to get the posts up in the next couple of days. But if you’re out there (and I know there are at least three of you) wondering whether you have to worry about your holiday cakes succeeding, you don’t. Follow the directions and all will be well. So take that off your pre-Christmas worry list.
More to come!
