A good laugh!!

Well I had been looking for a good recipe for fruitcake. I actually like fruitcake even though not many do. I came across this recipe and I could not stop laughing.......thought you might get a chuckle too......... here goes:

Famous Christmas Fruitcake

1 -Go to the crafts store.
2 - Purchase one or more bags of dried fruit, some plaster of paris, brown paint and a disposable cake pan.
3 - Go home.
4 - Unwrap the dried fruit, carefully folding the wrapper inside-out and placing it at the bottom of your trash can. Better yet, send it through your personal paper shredder and use it for insulation in the attic.
5 - Mix the plaster of paris with water and pour into the disposable cake pan. Place dried fruit on top, gently pushing in so it looks "baked" in the "batter." Let dry.
6 - Take your "fruitcake" out of the disposable cake pan.
7 - Cover the top, bottom and sides with brown paint, avoiding the fruit.
8 - Wrap your "fruitcake" in festive, colored saran wrap and finish with a bow. I like using red wrap because it gives a warm glow to the "fruitcake."
9 -Give your "fruitcake" to someone you want to impress. When they lift it, they'll say, "Wow! You must have made a really rich fruitcake!" Don't forget to smile and say, "Oh, its Paris-style fruitcake."
10 -Don't worry about someone trying to eat your fruitcake. Nobody actually eats fruitcake... that's just a rumor. Just so you know, the dried fruit won' go "bad" because it has the same preservatives as Twinkies, which have a shelf-life of about 237 years.

I am still laughing!!

Merry Christmas yall!!!

    You know that fruitcake will be regifted numerous times until another person who likes fruitcake finally opens it. They will put the blame on some poor unsuspecting soul who was just trying to unload a fruitcake to someone who they weren't particularily fond of.

    OH MY This Is Too Funny. I really like homemade fruitcake. We used to start making it in early Nov. for Christmas when I was growing up. We actually got creative too. We would save coffee cans--the large ones and smaller ones and baked the fruitcakes in these cans. This would give different shapes for added fun.
