Have you heard the joke about the fruitcake recipe? You drink the brandy intended for the cake and toss the rest of the ingredients out the window. How about the joke about regifting a fruitcake and having it return to you years later? Or, the one about the fruitcake that’s been the family heirloom since 1892? Fruitcake must be the number one scorned food, a holiday favorite that everyone loves to ridicule.
