Fruitcake. Why is nobody but me ever excited about it? It has all the right virtues (it’s unecessarily rich and calorific. It’s pain in the ass to make and/or expensive to purchase. Marzipan is optional). Oh well. All the more for me, suckers.
I have no source for good glace cherries or peel, so I use figs and dried pears instead. I miss the cherries, though, however tarty they might look. The cherries are like the shiny hidden treasure.
Speaking of which, and while I’m at it, here are two new shinies. I’m having a serious problem with my lack of shiny storage. I need to find myself some nice, small, weathered wooden chests, and damn well pronto.
