"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 cake is a rich, dark, moist fruit cake, very flavorful at Christmas. Try icing with almond paste for a more festive touch. This recipe is started in October or November so as to let it mellow before the holidays. I remember very well my mother storing her fruit cake in an old butter churn that belonged to my grandmother and great grandmother. I wish that I had that old crock." — by Carol

"It's a shame that fruitcake as a species gets such a bad rap. With its two key ingredients - rum and butter - it ought to be a hit. This recipe includes dried fruit, instead of the glowing, candied stuff we've all learned to associate with fruitcake, and is less dense and more cake-like than many fruitcake recipes. It has become a favorite of my friends and family around the holidays (even the skeptical ones), and is delicious by itself, or covered with a layer of almond paste. Fruitcake is also traditional for wedding cake in England, and makes a very rich, sophisticated dessert for luncheons or teas." — by Karen Uffelman

"It's a shame that fruitcake as a species gets such a bad rap. With its two key ingredients--rum and butter--it ought to be a hit. This recipe includes dried cherries, mango, cranberries, and currants soaked in rum overnight (a week or a month or more is even better). After it's baked, it ages in cheesecloth with additional splashes of rum. Let it ripen for 10 weeks for best flavor." — by Karen Uffelman

"This is a very good cake for Christmas. Do not double this recipe. You don't need to age this cake. Pineapple extract can be substituted for almond extract if you'd like your cake even more pineapple tasting! Originally submitted to CakeRecipe.com." — by Carol
