"Fabulous Fruitcake!" Jerry F. - Los Angeles, CA

"Grandma's fruitcake is just like the ones my grandmother made 50 years ago with plenty of great fruit and plenty of brandy. For anyone who loves old fashioned fruitcake I highly recommend this cake."

  • Of course, people eat the best fruitcakes! At Figi's, we send out 307,920 pounds of gourmet fruitcake each year, and we know from customer feedback that they are eaten and enjoyed with family and friends.

How do you revive stale fruitcake?

  • Some folks maintain that a well stored fruitcake can keep up to 25 years!
  • However, at Figi's, fruitcake disappears about as fast as it's made, so we don't know about that.
  • We do know that if it's left uncovered, it will get stale and hard... but you can revive it - and it's easy!
  • Wrap stale fruitcake in aluminum foil and heat slowly in a 200° oven. That's it! The starch in the cake that has absorbed the moisture and crystallized melts, and the cake will be moist and delicious once again.
