Michigan Family has a 141-Year-Old Christmas Fruitcake
No, that's not just their nickname for grandma. HEY OHHHHH!!
A Tecumseh, Michigan family has an heirloom that sounds delicious, but doesn't look delicious - it's a 141-year-old fruitcake.
The cake was made by Fidelia Ford, a mother of seven and the wife of a farmer. Every year, she made a fruitcake for Christmas. In 1878, she made her famous concoction...and died before she could try it. So, her family preserved it.
The cake has her obituary on to of it and has been passed down through generations of family and has only been sampled twice - once by Fidelia's grandson, Amos, and once by Jay Leno, who tried a piece when the cake was on his show back in 2003.
Several family members have already expressed interest in preserving the cake for the future, so it looks like you might read this again in another 50 years.
In the meantime, here's one that you can ACTUALLY eat and enjoy.
