1/07 - Jake and the Nevereaten Fruit Cake

Jake said, “I won’t eat it! Not even if I were stranded on a deserted island!”
Fun fact:  One of my family's holiday traditions growing up involved the Norwegian version of fruitcake called julekaga.  My grandmother would make it every year and mail us a loaf, along with a variety of Christmas cookies.  We'd inhale the cookies, but the julekaga...  notsomuch.  If visitors came along, we'd try to fob it off on them:  "Try it!  It's Norwegian!"  They'd take a polite bite or two, but you really could not get rid of that stuff.
