Happy National Fruitcake Day!

Happy National Fruitcake Day

What Is National Fruitcake Day?

National Fruitcake Day is the happiest of all days! A day when fruitcake lovers from all over the world unite to celebrate perhaps the most misunderstood of all desserts. A global culinary delicacy, there's a fruitcake recipe native to just about every country in the world. Baked in a variety of shapes and sizes, and adorned by a multitude of names, there's no denying the fruitcake craze is real. Just think, when you celebrate National Fruitcake Day, you're not just observing any 'ole holiday. You're taking part in a world-wide confectionary party! 

When Is National Fruitcake Day?

At Collin Street Bakery, we like to think every day is National Fruitcake Day. But officially, this holiday is observed on December 27th. Which, when you think about it, makes total sense. It’s only natural this most delicious of holidays would take place just a few days after Christmas. Fruitcake, as you know, is a traditional Christmas treat.

I have been trying to buy one of your fruitcakes for days but instead of allowing me to order I keep getting switched to an ad!

Best fruitcakes ever. My father before he passed away would send each of us one at Christmas and after he passed my brother took up the cause, but sadly it got too expensive and hadn't had one since. Shipping is so costly it makes them even more expensive. I like it so much and perhaps if it were in a lighter container it could bring the cost down. I love the old cans and always saved them. Again, best fruitcake ever, just can't afford one since losing my cafe/gift shop from the Pandemic. Things like fruitcake sadly get passed over. Hope next year is better and I can once again afford a fruitcake from Collin Street Bakery.

I have been a lover of fruitcake ever since 1950 when my mother kept calling me and finally found me behind the curtain under her kitchen sink: There I was eating her fruitcake.

I have been a fan since I was a child. My Dad received one in a Christmas basket from his employer and I was hooked! He started purchasing them for his relatives and our household after that, when he passed I began ordering them myself. People comment negatively about fruitcake all the time and I tell them that’s because they never had a Collins Street Bakery fruitcake. Thanks for the tradition. .
