Hello, Friends! The season is finally here that brings people together for holiday gatherings and parties, and I am so excited! I truly love this time of year.

Some people say it’s really not Christmas unless you indulge in a little fruit cake, right? I grew up with my Grandma’s German Stollen version of fruitcake, which was a little on the dry side. I remember my mom and her sisters washing each bite down with a few sips of coffee! It just wasn’t Christmas without Grandma’s fruitcake!

This past week, Collin Street Bakery sent our family a DeLuxe® Fruitcake to enjoy, straight from their Collin Street Bakery in Texas.

We shared it with some friends, along with a festive holiday champagne drink!

The cake is so moist, rich, delicious … you only need a sliver to be fully satisfied.

The Fruit Cake arrived in tip-top shape, perfectly baked and wrapped tightly in a cute Christmas tin, ready for entertaining!

At Collin Street Bakery, each fruitcake is the perfect balance of native Texan pecans (27%), and hand-picked golden sweet pineapple and lush papaya, from their own farms in Costa Rica. The ripe, red cherries are from Oregon (yay!) and Washington State. It’s also packed with pure clover honey, and plump golden raisins.

Buy it sliced.

You can also order the cake delivered to your door pre-sliced! What a time saver this is if you’re hosting a party.

The cake is so moist and delicious, and comes in 2 sizes: one that serves 16-20 guests, the other that serves 24-30 guests.

Holiday Gift idea.

I’m thinking about ordering several of these cakes for last-minute guests for the holidays, and for our peace of mind, to make our entertaining one-step easier … knowing that I can pull the dessert from the fridge and that it will be loved and devoured by all!

It’s also a great gift for your favorite host or hostess.

Cranberry Kir Royale.

Now for the holiday drink. Folks, this is one of the simplest, yet loveliest libations to serve for Christmas!

Add a sprig of rosemary and a couple of cranberries, and it’s absolutely delightful, with only 2 simple ingredients. You can use an inexpensive sparking wine or Prosecco is also a great choice. For a non-alcoholic drink use sparkling cider.
