How do you "Doctor" the DeLuxe® Fruitcake?
             We recommend a good Cognac, Brandy, Red Wine or Port be used. Simply soak a clean white cheese cloth in the spirit of your choice then remove the cello wrap from your DeLuxe® and place the cloth completely around the cake. Make sure to fill the center hole with part of the well soaked cloth.
Place the "Doctored" DeLuxe® back in the tin and refrigerate. After about 5 days remove and re-soak the cheese cloth with special interest on the part in center of cake. Repeat every 5 days keep tasting until it's just right. Happy Sampling!

How do you store the DeLuxe® and what's the correct way to slice it?
           The most convenient way is to order your fruitcake presliced!  The DeLuxe® is best when enjoyed within a few days of arrival. With refrigeration, it can stay moist and easy-to-slice for two to three months. For longer storage, we suggest the freezer, up to one year.
To Slice: Without removing the foil liner, slice with a serrated knife using a sawing motion. Wipe blade with a wet cloth after each slice. Remove liner for serving. Slicing with the liner still in place yields consistent slices for a more attractive presentation.
 
How long does the DeLuxe® last?
      

Oh, about 10 minutes after its unwrapped? :)
Your cake is best enjoyed within a few days of arrival.  With refrigeration, it can stay moist and easy to slice for several months.  For longer storage, we suggest freezing.

Is the DeLuxe® Fruitcake only available at certain times of the year?
     The DeLuxe® Fruitcakes are always freshly baked and available year round.
