Do you like it?

Fruitcake, my family loves fruitcake. I make homemade mini fruitcakes every year to give to family & friends and almost everyone I know likes it. Most even call to ask if I have any extras. Does your family like it?

  • I have no clue and frankly I do not care because I do not care for it myself! But I have never really liked any type of fruit in a dessert format, traditional desserts are REALLY, REALLY gross to me!!!!! I would prefer a dessert that sounds less like a dessert myself, for instance a sour cream and blueberry mousse! But apple pie/pecan pie/ lemon merinque (sp?) are nothing to me!!! I KNOW FOOD, and even the best apple pie on this fucked up planet does not even compare to a well made goumet dessert.

  • truthteller0722 - WOW, sorry I offended your senses by asking a question about such a gross item that is beneath your "gourmet" taste!!

  • Hmm that must be why Gordon Ramsey likes apple pie so much truth teller. Thats your opinion and from the way you put it frankly I think it stinks. I don't mean to offend you but maybe next time you should show some respect for another person.

    Personally I've never had a fruit cake but because of the alcohol content I don't plan on trying one until my kids are either grown and gone or they are spending the nite somewhere else.

  • I wonder if I should make one of my caramel apple pies for truthteller. I am told constantly that they are gourmet (probably from growing up in a restaurant). Nah. If she can't even ignore a question that she doesn't like or be nice in her response, she doesn't really deserve the goodies.

    I myself love all desserts and have enjoyed fruitcakes many times in my life. But of course I have also had some pretty nasty ones too.
