Stained glass

I love looking at stained glass projects!  It takes a true craftsman/woman to figure out all the glass puzzle pieces to cut and make them fit but you also need to have an eye for composition and color.  I don't have what it takes to work with stained glass in my art room but I do in my kitchen.  And it's completely edible!
I found the recipe in a recent Country Woman magazine.  Sharon Hoffman, of Donna, TX, submitted the recipe.  The note says this cake will turn you into a fruitcake lover if you aren't already.  I made some substitutions and I wasn't disappointed.  The recipe makes 4 mini loaves.  I gave 1 loaf to neighbors who don't normally care for fruitcake but could become lovers if all recipes turned out like this one. 

To buy a small loaf of fruitcake can cost between $7-10.  This version may be just as pricey but I got 4 loaves and I know what's in it.  LOTS of deliciousness!

Thankfully holiday calories and carbohydrates don't count!  lol


  1. I don't suppose you would be willing to share the recipe? I spend a fortune keeping my husband in fruitcake each year.
