"This is an old Italian family recipe for a cake we make at every big holiday. We actually lost the recipe for a while, and holidays just weren't the same. Then were overjoyed to recover it after a friend reminded us we had given it to her! We call it "The Cake That Saved Christmas." A chocolate delight any gangster would love." — by The Pellettiere's

"I got this recipe from another 'blue ribbon junkie' friend of mine years ago. It is very firm and very fine textured. It is the only cake I use when doing cake sculpting, and works very well in the 2 piece cake molds. The lowest ribbon it has ever worn, when entered into baking competitions is a Blue Ribbon, and it has gotten as high as Best of Show at a State Fair." — by Deirdre Dee

"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 called a bread, but tastes more like a cake. I make this mostly during the holidays. The spices in this cake just lend themselves to eggnog and Christmas smells. You can bake this as a bundt cake, 4 small loaves, or 2 medium loaves." — by v monte

Try making them in miniature muffin tins for an office party or potluck - you'll be a hit, I promise! Frost with your favorite buttercream frosting and decorate with colored sugar, halved maraschino cherries, chopped nuts, etc." — by Jennifer
