Advent Calendar Day 14 - Fruitcake

Prompt for December 14 – Fruitcake – Friend or Foe?
Did you like fruitcake? Did your family receive fruitcakes? Have you ever re-gifted fruitcake? Have you ever devised creative uses for fruitcake?


Did you like fruitcake? Did your family receive fruitcakes?We used to get a brick of fruitcake in the mail every Christmas when I was growing up. I don't remember who sent it to us or what company made it, but it was the worst. I'm not sure why but that box of fruitcake lived in our refrigerator for several months before we took it to the compost heap. Some archaeologist may uncover those discarded cakes sometime in the future and they will probably still look like they did when we received them. Aside from those fruitcakes, I actually like some homemade fruitcake. 

Have you ever re-gifted fruitcake?
I don't think we ever wanted to regift the fruitcakes we received because we did not dislike anyone that much.


Have you ever devised creative uses for fruitcake?Maybe a doorstop...
