All I can say is this particular page is totally self serving. I wanted to buy a fruitcake. I wanted to get a fruitcake that tastes good and I wanted to see if there weren't any religious folk making them. This is the collection I made one Sunday afternoon as I came up with likely places and good reviews of their cakes and other assorted goodies. Not all of these folks are religious, but a good many are. Others, I included because their cakes had rave reviews and, still others, like the MondoFruitcake Blog I included because they had already done some of the leg work.
The second part of this page is devoted to fruitcake recipes.
