    Debbie R.'s Note:

    This is the fruitcake I made for my birth family for many years; my sister still loves it and swears it is better than any fruitcake she's ever tasted. I haven't tasted any that come close. It needs 2 - 4 weeks for the flavors to meld and age well. Prep time is only a guess.

      Well after all these weeks I finally got to eat this! Fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are loving it! This is the best fruitcake I have ever eaten. It was worth the wait!!! I made the recipe exactly as written, but I must say I used a lot of Irish Whiskey while waiting. It ended up making 3 loves for me, so coating it every couple of days is where u use a lot of Whiskey. I am one of those wierd people that think fruitcake is good, but everyone I served it too raved also. Thanx I will be making this every year for the holidays.
