    I posted on another fruitcake thread last night, but alas, it was covering human fruitcakes...

    I am once again opening the doors to my United Fruitcake Orphanage. I take in poor unloved and underappreciated fruit cakes and give em the love they really really deserve... :rolleyes: ...

    If it weren't for shipping, I'd take in everyone's orphans....

    Of course, I could probably rustle up the postage if someone got one of those hawaiian fruitcakes (got one last year, packed with almost no filler, pecans and premium fruit inside, capped with a solid coat of macadamia nuts.... oh that was a very good orphan :p )

    I won't go into too much detail whether me liking fruitcake makes ME a fruitcake...

    Waitaminit....

    I think you are not giving those fruitcakes a good home... I think you are bathing them in brandy and then EATING them!!!! :nono:

    Oh, the horror!!

    ;)

    Pony! (who is keeping her fruitcakes, thank you very much!)

    Now, now, Pony

    I am not a dirty old man... I'd never get my fruitcakes drunk on brandy first, then take advantage of em...

    Of course, there was that one, that accidentally fell into a pan of rum... but that was an accident, yeah, that's it, an accident... :p

    I love fruitcake too. My dh buys me store bought cakes all the time. The store bought cakes are not always yummy. Those, I slice and place in a suet feeder. The birds love it. ;)

    I, for one, will be happy to send you any fruitcakes that come my way. I have never gotten home-made, delicious fruitcakes. Only store purchased door stops masquerading as fruit cakes. There is something seriously wrong with a doorstop that disguises itself as a fruitcake.

    I, too, would be happy to open my home to any poor, homeless fruitcakes! I have a big stomach, err, I mean, heart! Yeah, that's it, a big heart! :p

    I don't like fruitcake- maybe bec I don't like rum- but LOVE a fruitcake I make with gumdrop fruit (get the fruit flavored ones not spice) in place of candied fruit. nuts optional but beware it is candy not cake- eat SMALL pieces.
