Recipe by Carol

“This cake is a wealthy, darkish, moist fruit cake, very flavorful at Christmas. Attempt icing with almond paste for a extra festive contact. This recipe is began in October or November in order to let it mellow earlier than the vacations. I keep in mind very nicely my mom storing her fruit cake in an previous butter churn that belonged to my grandmother and nice grandmother. I want that I had that previous crock.”
