You’ve heard all the jokes, the ones about those dry, heavy bricks that get passed around the country because no one wants them. Those are not real fruitcakes. Truth is, back when the fabulous fruitcake was first developed, the dried fruits packed into this virtually air-free cake were going to be the last sweet food available for several months. The alcohol assured the cake would be moist and last a long time. These fruitcakes were highly prized gifts that became cherished holiday favorites for good reason. And that’s no joke.
