Cake and Fruit is Good.

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.
