Your description makes me realize just how much I'm not a professional pastry chef.

Using, instead, the scientific method, I inspected a fruitcake and determined they are made by staining block of wood to the desired color and then, when dry, soaking it in brine until it is further preserved, and finally, in warm pond water to make it swell. Then, simply paint the appropriate images of alleged dry fruit to decorate (like decorating a tree, really, but without all the leaves in the way).

Who'd have suspected anything to do with actual cake?
