    Fruit cakes are sometimes used in place of targets, but they don't break as easy!I have a big, beautiful ,blond bombshell who throws 'em for me to!She bakes 'em to!

    For my money, you can't beat the ones made by the Trappist monks of the Assumption Abbey in Ava, Missouri.

    Grunt has it right. Collins Street ships em all over the world. Absolutely the best.

    I forgot to mention that they come in a tin can, makes a good target when the cake is all gone.

    Claxton Fruitcakes, both light and dark, are excellent.

    Best,

    I recall seeing a show about a fruit cake company in Texas that had been around for long time. Claimed the best fruit cake ever. I recall that they claimed if you addressed a request to the best fruit cake in Texas it would get to them. But for the life of me, I can't remember any more. Good luck. Jake

    It was always my understanding that there have only ever been about a dozen fruitcakes in existance. That, whenever you recieved one in the mail, you imediately re-mailed it to someone else. It was my belief that this has been going on for the last 50-60 years.

    Believe it or not, these from Hostess are really good. Put them in the fridge for a couple months to cure, and they are great. Scroll down page about 1/2 way for a good picture. Bon Apetit.

    Lumpercake, no dont care for it. G


    Gordon ... why are you trying to involve me? This is exactly what trolls do. I have done nothing but to mention you in positive ways trying to steer business in your direction and you seem to want to act like your normal self with your vain trolling attempts. Thanks for showing many just what type of person you actually are.

    <I>"This whole time I thought fruitcake was just that, fruit and cake baked together. However after reading all of these responses, now I don't have a clue whats in one !"</I>

    Let me help you with that one...

    This picture was taken in the bakery of the Assumption Abbey in Ava, Missouri, as the Trappist Brothers are preparing their world-famous fruitcakes for aging. What they're doing is siphoning brandy directly from the bottles right onto the fruitcakes before wrapping them for aging. They'll do this 3 times before packaging their cakes. Commercial bakeries add the brandy to the batter and bake it into the cake where the heat adulterates the flavor.
    <center>[​IMG]</img></center>

    The fruits used in these cakes are fresh fruits that the Brothers chop and marinate in brandy themselves. They don't use those cubed, chewy, sugar laden chunks of mystery mango that you find in commercial fruitcake.

    You have no idea what you're missing if you've never ordered one of these little gems!

    Morgan
