Best Fruitcake Ever

I've never actually had fruitcake, so I can't really knock it. I can tell you it looks gross, but that's about it. But I hear lots of people dislike it intensely, especially when received as a gift. This one might not irritate your friends and family any less, but at the very least it should get points for creativity. It comes with its own envelope, so you can mail it right to the lucky recipient. I actually might send one to my grandma... she loves quirky stuff like this.

A good homemade fruitcake is a real treat, especially with the right balance of juicy fruits and nuts and batter, with a hint of rum. The nasty dry crap you get in the store is what gives the confection a bad name.

The chairman of the food pantry I volunteer for does an incredible fruitcake with huge chunks of pecans and fresh fruit and orange slice candy in it. You don't so much cut slices of it as spoon gobs of it onto your plate, because it's soaked with orange juice. I drool just remembering it! He does it without alcohol, but I bet a splash of Cointreau would elevate it to penultimate perfection.
