Today is National Fruitcake Day! Fruitcake is the butt of far more jokes than it deserves. If baked, and eaten, correctly, it can actually be pretty good. I mean...it's fruit and cake. That has not ever not been at least somewhat satisfying. Granted, fruitcake is generally a little... tougher... than most cakes, but that's really one of the only few downsides. Case in point: No sitcom has made fun of a fruitcake's taste. They always make fun of its weight, mass, or density. Which, if you think about it, are really just preferences when it comes to cake. Not that it's an all-too-common way to order a cake. If you come to my bakery and order a "dense, weighty" cake, I will not have any idea what you are looking for, and probably just suggest chocolate to you. Most people think chocolate is denser. For some reason. Weirdos.
