    I just received two fruitcakes from the Assumption Abbey Bakery, ordered on the recommendations of the earlier fruitcake thread. One was to be a gift but screw that! After one small slice, I decided to keep both for myself; I’ll get that old fart some socks.

    If you’ve always treated fruitcake as something that should be launched from a hand trap and shot with 7½s, then you haven’t tried these! Absolutely fantastic!

    I've always treated fruitcakes to a generous dose of a good burbon. (Learned that from my Uncle Jim) Let it soak in for a week or two and you'll have something that approaches etable.

    If you do that with an Assumption Abbey fruitcake, you will absolutely WRECK it. They've already been treated with something better!

    I bought one on Morgan's recomendation. It came and was so damn good I ordered 3 more. The other morning a bunch of my customers were in for coffee. I brought out one of the fruitcakes and told them to try this. Before they left I had to give the address for Assumption Bakery to 6 different people. I've got one cake left and I'm going to TRY to save it until Christmas.

    The one from Collin Street Bakery was less than satisfying, but I have not tried the one from Assumption Abbey yet, but I do have it in possesion. Also Claxton Bakery in Claxton Ga. make a pretty good one. JMHO Bill

    Oh, Zar, you'be been away too long man...this place has turned into a veritable old ladies' knitting circle of fruitcake afficionados since you left.


    Speaking of esoteric, urbane culinary wonders...have you had a Stuckey's Pecan Log lately?

    I have a couple of friends that visit once in awhile that would qualify as a fruit cake.
