My mom used to make fruitcake every year for Christmas and it was a great treat to look forward to all year. When I was in my teens I branched into my own fruitcake recipes. I have tasted commercial fruitcakes and understand why people disdain them, but feel the same way about say, Hostess fruit pies. That hasn't made people hate apple pie. How do you all feel about fruitcake and what do you think happened to create such a negative icon?
