thanks for the visual gift...your photos are gorgeous.


Now, how could it be "dry," when it's full of booze! :):):)

That looks like a comfort cake to me Glenna.


Patti--Thanks so much--that's really kind.

Sher--Exactly! It's "buzzed cake".

Tanna--LOL! LOVE that! That's what I'll rename it! Thanks!



I must say that we unveiled our fruitcakes just yesterday, so that I could slice them & divide them up. They'd been basted in an entire bottle of port, and then sat in the fridge since they finished consuming the port (at room temperature). So, all told, they've been waiting since before Thanksgiving. They're fabulous.

So - I don't know about the Southern Comfort, but I do know that a nice, sweet Port works wonders. :)


I'm in London and my Xmas cake is a round one, as in traditional here. I made it on the 5th, spiked it and drizzled it with brandy on the 12th and will do so once more before I ice it a few days before Xmas.

We eat it at 'teatime' on X. Day and any time in the days following.


David--Oh yum! They sound magnificent. Love the idea of port--great idea for next year, thanks!

Denzylle--All right!!! That sounds perfect. Our family party Christmas night but nothing like nipping a little ahead of time, right?


It looks like a perfect Christmas Cake in the making!
Just don't smother it with the incredibly too-sweet frosting they so seem to love!

A really good fruitcake may be hard to find but it is well worth it! Your's looks delish (and so Comfort-ing!)

Could I just sneak off to bedroom and have nip of cake?


That looks so good and very moist with a little help from that southern comfort.


Can't wait for you to taste it!
