Here's a new variety of fruitcake folks will surely favor. Mary Kay Calnan of Worthington, Ohio started with a pound cake mix and added traditional spices and raisins to give it a fruitcake flavor. Then she took the recipe a crafty step further by baking it in individual foil-lined flowerpots. "After the cakes are cool, I remove them from the pots and replace the foil with fabric, then fit the cakes back into the pots," describes Mary Kay.
