Fruitcake for Fruitcake Haters

Fruitcake for Fruitcake Haters - student project

There were so many possibilities for a zine on food! I sorted through them and decided to go with a step-by-step for my great-grandmother's white fruitcake recipe. My cousin and I are the only ones who still make it but it was very popular in my hometown when my grandmother was growing up.

It is a white fruitcake - made with egg whites and shortening rather than whole eggs and butter - and is delicious with or without the fruit in it. As candied fruit is usually in stores only during the holiday season, I make it between Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

My art may leave something to be desired but the cake recipe is all there.

Here is my zine, page by page.

Because my zine was for a Christmas recipe I used green for the cover and red tatting thread for the stitching.
