All fruitcakes weigh just over a pound and measure approximately 6" x 3" x 2". Each cake is a carefully crafted taste experience and considered the finest in the marketplace.
Like the English Plum Puddings that were traditionally made a year ahead, fruitcakes do improve with age. All my cakes rest at least a month before I sell them, but a full year older is even better. I actually set aside a certain number every season to age, and it costs to keep them in climate controlled refrigeration all that time, but it’s worth it. Over time the flavor has developed, expanded and become more complex. Like a wine that was fun while young but more serious now that it's aged, these fruitcakes have become a real fruitcake lover's treat.
