"A really good fruit cake recipe, one you can eat the same day you make it; it's even better if you let sit for awhile. It's baked in a tube pan to make a wreath shape." — by Karen D.

"This is a traditional Kentucky Christmas Cake. I like it better than fruit cake and the pecans may be soaked in bourbon several days before the cake is made." — by Debbie Collins

"This recipe was given to my mother in 1948 by a dear lady in Corpus Christi. There is just enough batter to hold the whole fruits and nuts together. For optimum satisfaction, leave all the fruit and nuts whole." — by Juanita

"This cake is more of a confection than a cake. It makes a beautiful, festive presentation. This recipe came to our family from a dear lady, Mrs. Barrows, in Corpus Christi in 1948. She shared this family recipe with my mother. Remember to leave all the fruits and nuts whole. Slice the cake thin. The slices are beautiful because you slice into the whole fruit and nuts." — by Juanita

"This is my mother's very old recipe, at least 60 years old. My mother baked this for my wedding, and it sure is delicious and also a great Christmas cake. This is a very long recipe, but well worth the trouble. You can substitute a cup of drained maraschino cherries for the candied cherries, if you like." — by Carol

"This cake should be made at least two weeks ahead to allow the flavors to blend. Hint: I cheat and use the date pieces coated with sugar (instead of regular pitted dates), just taking off most of the sugar by rubbing them in my hands." — by Pat K.
