Combative Fruitcakes

Fruitcake_02 Gummy the toothless werewolf here. I can have a real love-hate relationship with Combative Fruitcakes at times. They have been there to satisfy my hungry on many a holiday, but they can also be a real handful—jumping out unexpectedly from the pantry in the middle of the night while I’m on a fridge raid, for example. They did end up being a big help to me at my last FEAST. They helped me make a whole next spread of food when my hunger got the best of me and I ate all dishes originally laid out for guests. Anyway, be careful with these guys. They tend to rise up in the heat of battle, or the oven.
