Hi All,

Where can I find the best fruitcake in Montreal? I bought one today from the Pain Dore store on Peel in downtown. It wasn't the best use of $13.50. It's not a bad fruitcake, but it's not the best. And for $13.50 for a small loaf, it's a bit steep for a mediocre cake. The cake itself is dry and crumbly, though rich with candied fruit and raisins.

The cake is too dry for my tastes. I'm thinking of dousing it with some dark rum and letting it set for a bit. Is this a good idea? Or is it throwing good money after bad? Alternatively, I'm thinking of toasting it and spreading some butter over the cake.

Any thoughts on where I can find the best fruitcake in Montreal? And how to jazz up a bland fruitcake?
