Christmas Cakes and Shipping Costs

By

 It's Christmas time!

Presents and gifts and what to buy for friends and relatives near and far.

For those not living close by, there are lots of catalogs and online sites offering all kinds of goodies.  One of my favorite things to send is Christmas Cakes.  Yes, you hear lots of complaining about the standard fruitcakes.  But in Texas, there is a wonderful bakery,

(Collin Street Bakery) that makes fruitcakes that are delicious and everyone will want a piece.  Deluxe Fruitcakes from Waxahachie, Texas are something everyone would like.

They also have pineapple pecan, apricot pecan, chocolate pecan treats.  Pecans from Texas are the prime ingredient that makes the difference.  Now for the downside, the shipping cost for a regular size fruitcake is $13.00 each.  To me, that is ridiculous.  I will not spend that much money on shipping when other sites have much lower shipping costs.

If I absolutely have to have these Deluxe Fruitcakes I will go to Waxahachie.  Of course, I have the opportunity to do this.  Many of you will not.  So, if you want a Really Good fruitcake, go ahead and pay the shipping cost.  You won't be disappointed with the taste of this cake.

I also want to share with you another good cake to send for Christmas is the Tortuga Rum CakeTortugarumcakes.com Super delicious and cheaper shipping. Guess which one my relatives got this year! :)

Hi Ricki= I'm from Texas and had forgotten about Collin Street Bakery and their fruitcakes (which I Love!) I agree with you, the shipping costs can be prohibitive!!!. Sally K. & David L. Hanson (Sally) and I were just talking about this today!!!

Hi Kathy,  I love this fruitcake but my friends will have to get it in person from me.  Won't pay those high shipping costs!  Hope you had a great Christmas!
