And It's Not a Fruitcake!

'Oldest' Christmas cake celebrates 100th year: What might be the oldest Christmas cake in the U.S. just marked its 100th anniversary, the Star Tribune in Minneapolis tells us.

The petrified, two-layer, 7-inch cake, baked just before Christmas 1911, was discovered in a closet in 1992 before an estate sale. Pierre Girard, of Golden Valley, Minn., thinks it's spice, because of a "faint fragrance," the newspaper writes.
