Long Slow Night at Work....

November 15th, 2006 (01:53 am)

Spent most of the evening with the boys in the kitchen, trying to come up with a way to "Liquor Up" a store bought fruit cake. Benjamin's Mum asked me if I knew how, and I allowed as how I would find out...

She has a place she gets them from that is just amazing--but alas, they have no booze
in them! My only experience was with soaking the fruit before making the cake itself.
tick_wonderdog, do you have any suggestions?

Word on the street has it you can use a turkey syringe and inject the rum slowly in small
amounts through out the cake and then wrap it in plastic to set for a week or so in the
fridge or freezer. This sounds reasonable, but if anyone has any further suggestions
they would be MOST WELCOME!

^_^

I am so excited about Thanksgiving on the Farm.
I cannot wait to make my annual cranberry/granny smith apple pie!


I'll have to bring one for my Folks at Christmas time I know--Mom will miss my pie
more than she misses me I think this year...

I'm very Pie-Proud.

*laughs*

Okay...off to bed with me.
*YAWNS*

"Pie-Proud" *snkx!*

I second that: you look cute and sweet in that picture, although it's not very manly of me to use either of those words. And the Batman PJ bottoms! (manly swoon)

I would expect nothing less from the likes of you, my dear Rooty Grrrl! Hmm! *crosses arms and gives single, accentuating head nod*

Any way you can fax me a slice of that? It sounds divine.

i once made a booze cake where i poked holes in the cake with a chopstick, then poured the liqueur over the top... seemed to soak in pretty well!

also, cranberry apple pie? sounds LOVELY.
