Many people look forward to sweet treats during the Christmas holidays. Fruitcake is part of the Christmas celebration in many countries. This rich cake is made with spices, dried fruit and nuts. The best fruitcakes are 50 percent fruit and nuts. To come in America, however, fruitcake is not appealing. They don’t think it tastes good, and it’s usually stale. People who receive one often regift it rather than eat it.
