Who eats fruitcake?

Am I the only dork that actually LIKES fruitcake?
My Dad has always made an awesome one, and I feel like a freak when I see commercials and such about people "re-gifiting" and taking offense to recieving a fruitcake from someone.
Please tell me there's someone else out there....

I used to really love fruitcakes but they went on the banned list when I was dialysing. Now that I'm allowed them again, I haven't been able to enjoy the flavour again. I bought one only a month ago - a light fruit cake - and after one little slice, I had to give it away. Maybe one day, I'll be able to eat them again. Same thing happened with me and bananas.

I always thought the fruit cake was the best bit of a wedding!!

I enjoy fruit cake. I have my grandmother's version, and even people who say they don't like fruit cake enjoy it. I have eaten some cakes that I didn't like however. Mostly the ones with an in ingredient list that fills up the page.........So, no Miss Suzi you are not the only one........

The more alcohol, the more preserved the cake - which in theory, means the cake lasts longer. Just got to stop it getting eaten first!!!
