Question: What is the best way to serve and store Jane Parker Fruit Cake?

Answer: The best way to serve your fruitcake is to refrigerate the cake for 24-48 hours before slicing and serving. When slicing your Jane Parker Fruit Cake, it's best to use a serrated knife, wiping it off with a clean, damp cloth after each slice. Fruit cake is best eaten when cut; over time, exposure to air may dry out the cake. To maintain freshness of the fruit cake once it has been opened, re-wrap it with cellophane wrap. For long storage (several months) refrigeration is best.
