Liz Abeles's FRUITCAKE by Popular Demand
- Published on Dec 24, 2018
- My family took Fruitcake very seriously. My mom made both light and dark fruitcakes every year for as long as I can remember and shipped them out to family and friends all over the country. My dad was in charge of all the shipping. So many incredible memories. Today, I know that my mom and dad were watching from up above and approving because the cakes in this video turned out absolutely perfectly. Thanks mom and dad it was a wonderful feeling honoring you guys today.
Christian Brother's Brandy...Lowell, "We need MORE!" my mom would say. It is the only liquid in these fruitcakes, and she made a lot of them.
