fruitcake

Our 53rd bake from Claire Saffitz’s Dessert Person was a two-month long process: Fruitcake! We skipped ahead to this recipe from the Layer Cakes & Fancy Desserts chapter because we wanted to have it ready for the holidays. The actual bake itself took place in the fall, after which we spent 8 weeks feeding our fruitcakes two tablespoons of brandy or Grand Marnier to preserve them. Once ready, they are covered in raspberry jam, marzipan, and royal icing. We’re not sure the time and effort paid off in terms of taste, but we’re glad to have had this unique experience!
