Make 'Em Swoon Over Your Store-Bought Fruitcake

'Devil's Fruitcake'

1 store-bought fruitcake
Brandy (unflavored)

  • Remove the fruitcake from its outer packaging, leaving its baking liner in place.
  • With a long, thin piercing tool (such as a skewer) poke several long, diagonal holes throughout the fruitcake in intersecting directions.
  • Place the fruitcake in a covered, glass casserole dish (or other suitable container) and carefully pour 1-2 tablespoons of brandy over the entire top of the cake.
  • 'Move the fruitcake around' to evenly distribute the brandy throughout the cake.
  • Place the covered casserole in the refrigerator.
  • Every other day, "water" the fruitcake with 1 tablespoon brandy, remembering to 'move the cake around.'
  • For each slice eaten (always slice when cold to prevent breaking), dress the exposed side with 1 teaspoon brandy.
  • Serve with whipped cream if desired.
