    How many out there have eaten a fruit cake that they like ??? 

    I'm not talking about the commercial door stop fruit cake that your family has passed around for years that no one has tasted.

    I Love Fruitcake, they say you are what you eat. 

    I like to take a whole fruitcake  and then pour a little RUM or Whiskey on it every day or so and wrap it in a tea towel to keep it moist... after getting it thoroughly saturated it is delicious just be careful not to over indulge...

    I agree with what James said (substitute beer for chocolate)!

    It was a guy like him who relieved my sciatic nerve pain too! [​IMG]
