I feel I owe this to you. So, if you're feeling not faint of stomach, you can check Flickr to see the photos of the unveiling.

That totally blows my theory that there is only one fruitcake in existence that just keeps getting passed back and forth....

Man, that's one tough fruitcake. I had no idea they could even last THAT long.

YUM!

I loved the fruitcake story and I'm so glad you decided to share. The tin was amazing!

I also loved the fruitcake story. I'm glad you shared it, especially now that it has been given a final resting place.

I enjoyed the pictures, too. It's fascinating to see what happened to the tin.

um ... WOW. That needed to be documented.

Jessica said...

R.I.P. dear fruitcake. We hardly knew you.

Thank you dear Magpie for capturing the viewing in photos so we can all pay our respects.

wow. who knew fruitcake could eat through metal(and I think I used to have one of those tins)

Sober Briquette said...

The picture on that tin? Could it be worse than the fruitcake itself? I think so.

Not only did I go look, but I couldn't stop myself from looking at every single photo.

Julie Pippert said...

I like what I have in my head, LOL.

Gina said...

Sadly, that's only slightly less appetizing than a fresh fruitcake.

Eva said...

That was very educational, thank you!
