Both would work just fine, but #2 would be a lot more useful. A tip I probably can't find if I just do a google search. I'd appreciate #2 more.

PS - for the record, I will never make a fruit cake. Yuk.

#1 is more concise but, in this example, I cook like #2 - so I appreciate the new twist suggested by the commenter.

Fruit cake is best used as a door stop Annette! That is my answer.

Annette,

The only reference I have to fruitcakes is a story in the New Yorker that marked the debut of a talented American writer,  Truman Capote.

And I would not make a fruitcake, neither one of us like it.  And I have no expectations of helpful or otherwise when it comes to the answers once gets. A

3. I would never do such a thing.

The last hint of a fruitcake that I ate was part of an MRE eaten while fighting smokechaser fires in the mountains of Northern Idaho back in the early 80's.

One bite was enough, the rest was unpackaged and left for the local wildlife, however I suspect they were smart enough to reject it also.

Chances are that is remains on the side of that mountain, uneaten and still in perfectly preserved form.
