    Fruitcake. Do you love it? Hate it? Use it as a doorstop? Send it as a gift to your worst enemy? Actually EAT it? :eek:

    Me: Can't stand it! Don't even know why it was ever invented. :hmmmm2:

    Honestly, not even sure if I've ever had it!
    For the holidays, I go for stollen or panetone. Both have fruit but delicious. :D

    4:00 Mark is his best fruitcake impression. ;)

    Here both Xmas cakes and wedding cakes are traditionally fruit cakes that are made months in advance then given a liberal douse of brandy each week.

    Does help to keep them from going off - with wedding cakes, the other tradition is that the top tier is kept for the christening of the first kid - in theory, at least 9 months later.

    Personally, can't abide fruit cake .. but then I don't really like any cake :D

    I'd be a bit careful about that one. I believe that "fruitcake" is also derogatory and offensive slang, particularly in the States. In the same way that "******" is. A person seeing that on a T-shirt could take it the wrong way IMO.

    There are fruitcake tossing competitions for those who got the stuff for Christmas. Is it edible? It doesn't look like it.

    Fruitcake is probabbly the epitome of nasty to me but my Grandmother loved them for some unknown reason to me :thinking:

    The Collins Street Co fruitcakes are actually very good. It's somewhat of a tradition in my family, and when I exposed my wife and step-daughter to it, they liked it too. Every year my wife usually asks for me to buy one.

    I've never had any other fruitcake that was worth eating.

    A well-made (usually home-made) fruitcake is a wonderful thing... in small doses.

    A badly-made fruitcake is a weapon of dense proportions.

    In the US, fruitcake generally means just that, one of those awful concoctions of candied fruit in an otherwise perfectly nice cake. And I'm VERY sensitive to words that are used in a derogatory manner--the way '******ed' is now (I cringe every time I hear someone say, "that's ******ed!" With my big mouth, I usually speak right up and say, "well, no, actually it's NOT ******ed. :mad:")

    Fruitcake is used in a funny insulting way, like "you're nuttier than a fruitcake! :)"

    I know there are people who use the word as a derogatory jab at homosexuals, but they're in the very small minority. And shame on them. And I refuse to let them make this thread not about the awful concoction! :D

    Why not Stollen instead?
    @ Lunatic
    Your math doesn't add up. If you candied the fruit you should have red and yellow pieces in there. Blueberries would turn that icing or whatever blue,

    That looks like the awful jello concoction you can get in a supermarket deli.

    Well if the fruit and cake is pineapple upside down cake, then I like it.

    That jellied fruit cake thing that could probably be used as adobe bricks to build things, and possibly survive a trip to Jupiter, I'll pass on...

    Fruit cake is NASTY. I avoid it for the same reasons I avoid eggnog. :puke:

    Eggnog is fantastic! How can you not love it? Mmmmm, tasty. Cheers!

    I tried eggnog a couple of times, but I just get put off by the flavor. To each his/her own I guess.
