Let them eat Fruitcake!


We all know what a bad wrap fruitcake gets.
My kids wouldn't touch the traditional version with a 10 foot pole,
 so I decided to put a fun, new twist on it.


I started with white, fluffy coconut cake
(coconut is a fruit, right?)...

and added fruit slice candies....

Simple, festive and colorful.
Finally a fruitcake that screams, 
Eat Me!


And I just couldn't resist some gummy mint leaves 
for a second holiday cake...

They make the perfect wreath.


So this Christmas,
let them eat CAKE!

For these I used store bought cake but my favorite recipe is 
Ina Garten's Coconut Cake.
All the candies were available at my supermarket.
