It doesn’t even matter if it’s that time of the season, no one likes fruitcake more that one Carla Rea! It’s been the topic of conversation over the years on The Mike & Carla Morning Show and it’s a well known fact that Carla LOVES fruitcake!
While others might use it as a door stop, Carla relishes this holiday delight and even goes out in search of the best fruitcake in the valley! She even tells the story of how some friends got her a fruitcake as a joke, but the joke was on them when she feasted on the loaf for weeks over the holidays.
According to a recent article on fruitcake put out by Mental Floss, it seems as if the cake it very much misunderstood and to read this article is to appreciate this once a year favorite! It’s a Royal favorite in England and, compared to the Twinkie, can stay fresh and eatable for up to 25 years! Now c’mon, is that not the best?
The other fact that the average fruitcake does have a bit of booze as one of the more important ingredients, which would have nothing to do with Carla loving fruitcake as she does…or maybe it does.
Listen, when it comes to the holidays, all the rules are thrown out the window and things we’re not real fans of the rest of the year, all of a sudden we are right there asking for seconds…and we have a feeling this is one of those things. While most would deny their love, we have a feeling there are a lot of those people that will sneak a slice after hours with the lights low and everyone sleeping.
Now Chef Fleming, of “Fleming’s Bake Shop” in Henderson on Water Street has been a fan of The M&C Show for quite a while and this morning called in to find out how many fruitcakes Ms. Carla would be ordering this year! enjoy the segment and Happy Holidays!
