I've seen no fruit cake would stand up against my band saw and some home churned butter. Specially if F/C allowed to sit until spring when the old cove gets into the onion grass stinking up her milk /butter. Don't forgit ta knock the mouse poop offin the top of the cake. Storin cake that long might not be a good thing. My local saw bones says they is a tooth store down the road so ifin last years cake breaks off a chopper , it can be easy replaced , long as I have some wallet cabbage ta pay. Dunno 'bout that.
I never cared for it, but it does have a shelf life about measured in glacial epochs. With the recent trend of long term calorie stockpiling (not new to me) I looked at maybe acquiring a few tins or maybe learning how to make it.
