Happy Friday! By now most, if not all of the presents have been unwrapped and the excitement may be waning a little. There may be a present or two that you are not quite sure what do to with, if one of those is a fruit cake, let me offer a few suggestions.
- Place your fruitcake in a safe place, leave it for ten years, then re-gift.
- Fruitcakes make great doorstops.
- Fruitcakes make excellent book ends.
- Fruitcakes can be used as blocks.
- Fruitcakes can be used to repair sections of your deck or driveway.
- Use it as a weight to hold down your portable basketball goal, this will prevent the goal from tipping over during periods of high winds.
- If you get two, drill a hole through the middle of each one (hammer drill is recommended) attach securely to a study metal p[ole, use as dumbbell.
- If you own a pickup truck, place fruitcakes in the truck bed to add weight for traction in the snow.
- Fruitcakes make excellent boundary markers for your driveway or yard during snowy months they hold their shape no matter how many times you or the snow plow run over them.
- If you cannot use it during the winter months, just hang onto it until spring and use as a boat anchor.
- Break it into smaller pieces (jackhammer recommended) and use like pumice to clean pots, pans and porcelain.
- Break it into smaller pieces (jackhammer recommended) and use as rocks for your gas fireplace.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
“Reality is like a fruitcake; pretty enough to look at but with all sorts of nasty things lurking just beneath the surface.” ~ A. Lee Martinez
You must not have eaten a good fruitcake. After trying to make my own this year I can say that homemade fruitcake is nothing like the store bought cakes. Homemade fruitcake is delicious. 😀
If there are a lot of nuts and very little fruit I can take a little bit of t. My Mom used to make them, just never cared for the fruit in the cake.
