            Fruitcake in Crisis!

            Fruitcake, much maligned, the butt of many jokes and practical jokes - and yet much esteemed by many, and an important part of many folks' holiday tradition and ritual.

            It's fruitcake weather! so i am at the national fruitcake preservation institute to partake in the annual fruitcake ritual. as you can see, all the ingredients of a good fruitcake have been assembled.
            Fruit cake always tastes better when prepared on a table that is covered with a plastic christmas table cloth on it. non-christian fruitcake aficionados use a festive table cloths related to joyous occasions such a hanukkah, kwanza, winter solstice or the japanese emperors birthday.
            This is the most important ingredient - a copy of truman capote's "a christmas memory." omitting this vital ingredient renders the fruitcake inedible. this is the flaw with many commercial fruitcakes. these doomed fruitcakes remain unopened and circle the worldwide postal system never finding a home.No fan fare heralds the start of the ceremony. the ritual begins with the lining of the baking pan. butter secures the wax paper to the special fruitcake pan that has been handed down through the ages.
            I have the important task of creaming together the sugar and butter. the goodness of this fruitcake depends on how well i do this. i will live up to this challenge.the careful sifting of the secret dry ingredients reminds me of a gentle winter snow fall,an enchanting snow globe or baby powder on a hot summer day. don't you think so?
            Yummy nuts, candied fruit, holiday colored cherries, raisins and cute little currents are all mixed together in another bowl.
            I had better taste a walnut to make sure that is tasty enough for this special fruitcake. yep. it is.
            Bedecked in the ceremonial floral apron, the fruitcake master whips all the ingredients together with my creamed butter and sugar. What a stirring momentthe melange or fruits and nuts are then gingerly folded into the rich and creamy batter.it is always appropriate to taste the mixture at this point of the ceremony. I take just a little taste being mindful not to drool on the spoon. Accompanied by the humming of a cheerful improvised tune, the batter is poured into the fruitcake pan.
            Spreading the batter carefully in the pan assures that the cake will bake evenly and be attractive.
            oh! look! this wooden spoon looks like it needs to be licked clean. I am always happy to offer my services to such a task.
            Now, the solemn moment comes when the cake is placed in the preheated oven.
            A moment of silence is observed then the oven timer is set.
            All the ritual implements are now washed, dried and put away for use next year.
            The guardian of the fireplace has started a lovely roaring fire and the comfy chair is pulled close to the hearth.
            buzzzzz! the fruitcake is cooked! The aroma is over whelming and the lovely golden brown color is so stunning that it brings tears to my eyes.
            Using the traditional festive holiday potholder, the hot and friendly cake is placed on a cooling rack.

            Then we wait for the cake to cool. this takes forever.... after a while, the fruitcake is removed from the pan and the protective wax paper is peeled off to expose the attractive character of the warm fruitcake.we wait some more for the cake to cool completely. this gives me an opportunity to admire the beautiful cake and ponder its mysteries just as the monks from the abbey of gethsemani do when they make their scrumptious fruit cakes.
            a hush falls over the room as the fruitcake is lowered into its new home. How calm and aromatic the fruitcake is during all this attention.
            now that the fruitcake is hermetically sealed in the high tech fruitcake vault. We must now wait for it to age to perfection before we open the container to taste it.
            the other guests have left, but, i am going to stick around so that i can be the first to greet the fruit cake when it comes out of the tin.

            It sucks and I toss the **** away!Now lets cut the Cherry pie.

You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."
