In August, a century-old fruitcake left behind by Captain Robert Falcon Scott was discovered in relatively good condition in Antarctica’s oldest building at Cape Adare. Here’s what you had to say:
Someone will probably find my scones in 100 years time! I don’t have much success with them; they could be used as paving stones.
There are at least two ways to look at it: 1. You’ll notice Scott still didn’t eat it, and 2. Man, he dragged it a long way away to get rid of it!
Fruitcakes taste better when they are at least a year old. Don’t know about one that age. I often let mine mature for at least six months, more if possible.
I am a rarity in that I actually do like fruitcake. But I don’t think I’d want to eat this one!
