The fruit in these three fruitcakes hung out for several weeks in a glass jar, easily soaking up three full cups of dark rum. Now, as finished cakes, they will rest until Christmas in this plastic box covered in plastic wrap. Occasionally they will accept additional sprinklings of more rum. The fragrance is fabulous! Soon they will retire to the freezer as it is really impossible to slice them unless they are very very cold. Behold the magnificent fruitcake!
