Great to hear that you are skilled at fruit cake making. This is a really lovely thing to know about you as I really like fruit cake and it is great to know there are skilled people out there making them. (I would be happy to trade fruit cake samples some time). It could be a fruit cake swap meet instead of a cycle swap meet.
