    How do you "Doctor" the DeLuxe® Fruitcake?
     
      We recommend a good Cognac, Brandy, Red Wine or Port be used. Simply soak a clean white cheese cloth in the spirit of your choice then remove the cello wrap from your DeLuxe® and place the cloth completely around the cake. Make sure to fill the center hole with part of the well soaked cloth.

    Place the "Doctored" DeLuxe® back in the tin and refrigerate. After about 5 days remove and re-soak the cheese cloth with special interest on the part in center of cake.

    Repeat every 5 days keep tasting until it's just right.

    Happy Sampling!

    How do you store the DeLuxe® and what's the correct way to slice it?
     
      The DeLuxe® is best when enjoyed within a few days of arrival. With refrigeration, it can stay moist and easy-to-slice for a least two months. For longer storage, we suggest the freezer.

    To Slice: Without removing the foil liner, slice with a serrated knife using a sawing motion. Wipe blade with a wet cloth after each slice. Remove liner for serving. Slicing with the liner still in place yields consistent slices for a more attractive presentation.

    How long does the DeLuxe® last?
     
     
    Oh, about 10 minutes after its unwrapped? smile!

    Your cake will keep well at room temperature for 60-90 days. (I always put mine in the refrigerator). If long storage is anticipated then the freezer is the place for it.

    Is the DeLuxe® Fruitcake only available at certain times of the year?
     
      The DeLuxe® Fruitcakes are always freshly baked and available year round.

My husband and I visited the original store on Sunday. We drove 280 miles just to visit the store. My husband enjoyed the 10 cent coffee while I shopped. We really enjoyed the trip. We'll see you next year!!

We've been your customers since 1989, and still coming for us and our friends as Christmas gifts. DeLuxeŽ Fruitcakes are the best.

My 93 yr old dad always looks forward to "doctoring" his fruitcake for the weeks of the holidays.

I used to get your fruitcakes as a regular Christmas dinner from my brother in-law each year, and grew very fond of them. After his passing, I had no other choice than start my regular Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner special.

Love the coffee that I rec with the Thanksgiving cake and I am looking forward to the same great cake at Christmas. Thank you guys for doing such a great job.

Your products, particularly your fruitcake & pecan pies, are FABULOUS! THE BEST EVER!

This is my 12th year that I have purchased a fruit cake from Collin Street. I have never been disappointed. I have shared with people who have stated that they “don’t like fruit cake”. After they tasted Collin Street, they realized that they loved fruit cake!
Added by Darla

This fruitcake has become a family tradition. We always look forward to having a slice with a glass of eggnog around the fire. It just wouldn't be Christmas without it!

It can't be Christmas without this fruitcake!!

My Dad lives in Illinois & says your fruitcakes are the best. Since I live in Texas, I am the chosen one to send it to him every Christmas.

Best Fruitcake out there!

My parents have been receiving this fruitcake yearly since they were married - over 40 years ago!! I have since taken over the yearly tradition, sending a cake to them each holiday season.
Added by Miguel

Feliz Navidad!

It was tradition. My mother sent a Collin Street DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake to everyone in the family at Christmas time. Since she died, I have continued her tradition. Merry Christmas.
Added by Jack

For many years my Mother has sent us a Collin Street DeLuxeŽ fruit cake. It has become one of our Christmas traditions. It just wouldn't be the same without one.
Added by S.B.

My mom began receiving your mail order fruitcakes when I was in JHS back in the mid-70s. This was way before the Internet! She hasn't ordered any of your fruitcakes since then. Not knowing what to give my mom this Christmas, I suddenly remembered how she enjoyed your fruitcakes and so did I. I will surprise her by shipping your fruitcake to her doorstep this year. She'll know exactly who ordered it for her since my dad passed away long ago and my siblings were very young back then. It makes me happy knowing she'll enjoy this special indulgence!
Added by SUZY

I THINK THIS PAGE IS FANTASTIC AS ARE YOUR FRUIT CAKES AND DESSERTS

Thanks for the quick turnaround! I just ordered cookies the other day and my nephew called to thank me today for them! Said they were incredibly good. Sure appreciate the quality and service!
Added by Geo

Having grown up in Texas, I've been eating your fruitcake at the holidays as long as I can remember. This year we visited my girlfriend's sister and brother-in-law in San Jose, California for Thanksgiving. I truly enjoyed my time there and could think of no finer expression of my gratitude for their hospitality than to order a DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake for them. It arrived yesterday and I look forward to their reaction when they open it for Christmas.
Added by James

Christmas without your special fruit cake is unimaginable.
Added by Travis

As a boy in the early 70s, I still remember getting our first fruitcake from Colin Street Bakery at Christmas time. The can was beautiful to me, and the cake was simply fabulous. Each year we enjoyed these marvelous cakes.

Now grown with a family of my own, this fruitcake remains one of my favorite Christmas traditions, which is always delicious to eat, but also one which brings back such a rich rememberance of great times growing up in south Texas.
Added by Gloria

I've created a tradition by giving my mom a fruitcake from Collin Street Bakery for several years now. She absolutely looks forward to it, and so does my dad!
Added by Leslie

I have (since I was a little girl) loved Collin Street's DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake! After I was married my Mother each Christmas would send me and my husband one. After she died I continued sending myself one, remembering her and her love.
Added by Marti

People who make jokes about fruitcakes have never had a Collins Street Bakery fruitcake. A wonderful tradition and one delicious cake.

I have had a number of friends say they did not like fruit cake. I then had them taste the Collins Street Bakery Fruitcake and they changed their minds. It's the greatest!!!

Added by Deanna

THE BEST !!!
Added by Evelyn

I ordered one of your fruitcakes several years back for a friend. My brother-in-law, Jim enjoyed them so much his wife, Bernice, ordered them for years. As Christmas gets closer I recall eating cake with them and decided to get my own this year. Even if it misses Christmas it will still be greatly enjoyed. I plan to "soak" it.
Added by Evelyn Johnson

I'm looking forward to the fruitcake arrival!
Added by George

Love the fruitcake since I was a little girl living back in Raymondville, Texas. Thanks a million for a great dessert.
Added by Shirlane

It has become a yearly thing to order at least one fruitcake. As my sons always say we only live once, why not but the best things in life. Of coarse, they were speaking of Collin Street fruitcake!
Added by Mark

Receiving a Collin Street Bakery DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake at Christmas from my uncle Rob, who lived in Texas, was a Headrick household family tradition. Uncle Rob passed away a couple of years ago and with that, the treat with that recognizable label and beautiful tin stopped coming too.

This year, I decided to pick up the tradition that my uncle Rob had so warmly created. I sent a Collin Street Bakery DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake to my grandmother's. She was not expecting it and boy was she surprised! I called her, when I found out she had received it, and she said she almost cried...at that moment, it was not "just a fruitcake", but so much more. I had a tortilla chip business and had similar testimonials. Those testimonials reinforce the hard work and dedication that you and your family have put into the business. Thank you for the avenue to bring someone joy this holiday season.
Added by C.S.

We have been eating DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake at Christmas since 1985 and friends who do not like fruitcakes change their minds after I offered them Collin Street DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake....it is simply beyond comparison. Every year my in-laws look forward to receiving the fruitcake from us...
Added by Babsi

Every Christmas we receive this wonderful Fruitcake from our friends in CA. They send it to us in Stuttgart (Germany), and we would like it, if Christmas could be 3 times a year!
Mmmm yummy, soooo good!

Oh My Gosh, we've been eating the DeLuxeŽ fruitcake for years. Our son buys two at Christmas & doesn't share ! You haven't eaten a true fruitcake until you've had a Collins Street Fruitcake !!!
Added by Brenda

I ordered your DeLuxeŽ Fruit Cake this year at Christmas for the first time on the recommendation of a friend. Best fruit cake I have ever eaten. Will be buying frequently now.
Added by Freddie

When I was a boy my parents would buy a fruit cake each year at Christmas and that was a special treat. I knew he purchased them from Sears and Roebuck catalog but they no longer sold them and one day there they were on the internet--what I saw was what I remembered and I have been buying them for my family and friends for the past 10 or so years. "Boy" are they finger licking good!!!
Added by Jane

My friend served the DeLuxeŽ Fruit Cake when I went to visit at their cabin. It was so good that I came home and ordered one for myself and one for my son in Wyoming. He loved it.
Added by Albert

Your DeLuxeŽ Fruit Cake is the best I have tasted. I ordered one for my sister and she enjoyed it as well. Keep on making them :)
Added by Margreth

My dear mother in Germany, who is now 97, has enjoyed your DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake for many, many years. I think the reason why she is still so full of zest and joy for life is she is living from "fruitcake to fruitcake". She loves it so much. It keeps her going. Your fruitcake will get her to be "100". I am sure.
Added by Leo

I have bought these fruit cakes over the years. My friends who "never eat fruit cakes" are glad to share them with us. Holidays are always times of the year when you can share these with friends. Buy them so you can share them and watch the joy they bring.
Added by Barbara J.

Our high school band in Oregon sold these every winter. We have missed them so much since retiring. I never cared for fruitcakes and still don't EXCEPT yours. Thank you for a wonderful and tasty product.
Added by Rita

As a child, my family started eating (and loving) DeLuxeŽ fruitcakes from Collin Street Bakery. Of course, people who had eaten sub-standard fruitcakes always laughed when I told them I LOVE fruitcake. We had a few people over the years that would trust us and try fruitcake @ our house and many were converted! I'll only eat Collin Street Bakery DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake. There is none that is better.
Added by Gate

In the 1960's when my husband and I were students and lived out-of-state, his parents sent us a Collin Street Fruit Cake in the Texas tin every Christmas season. The cake came for years and I saved every tin. At the time it was always "Oh my, not another fruit cake." However, we GRAZED on the cake for weeks and I loved the cowboy tin. It was a homesick touch from home. My husband and I are in our early 70's now, and we miss the Xmas Fruit cake (signed love, mom and dad) so much. I am ordering a fruit cake because I need it. It has become a part of our family tradition. I will pass on the tradition to my grandkids someday, just to hear them say "Oh my, not another fruit cake", but they will love it, just as we have.
Added by Lynn

I dislike ALL fruitcake except yours! Have been buying it for years!
Added by Henry H.

Our family has enjoyed your DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake for so many years. There is nothing quite like it on the market anywhere. Hard to share but even harder to hoard.

In the 1960's I worked for a company that gave us a Collin Street fruitcake and enjoyed it so much, that I continued to purchase them for our family and friends. They are the best!

I remember this cake since I was a child. My grandfather worked many years in Texas from the 70's to 80's and he always took this cake home to Norway for Christmas. A wonderful childhood memory.
Added by Geri

These cakes and pies are my mom's treat from me. She is 93 years old and lives by herself so she doesn't get to have many sweets. These are for her. Thank you Collin Street for help making my mom's life a little fun.
Added by Andre

We are tremendously looking forward to receiving our DeLuxeŽ cakes - the first in South Africa for us! We have already shown your catalog to several of our friends
and this order is for them. We hope to send you many new orders for more friends once our taste buds have experienced the delicious taste.

In 1967 my parents sent me one of you fruit cakes when I was in Vietnam. I was lucky to get a small piece of it. My friends took care of the rest. It was delicious.
Added by Robert

I bought the original Pecan Fruit Cake in the 1960's and 70's for my family and friends, then many things changed in my household and I haven't bought any for over 30 years, but tonight my son-in-law asked me if I had ever made a fruitcake, as he loves them and my daughter hasn't ever made a fruitcake, so I told him about the Collin Street Bakery fruitcake and we immediately ordered some. Thank you for your longevity and consistency in such a good product; I'm thrilled to share with another generation.
Added by Bette

Aloha from Hawaii. My dad sent us a Collin Street tin with the wonderful pecan-topped fruitcake every Christmas. We love it! Dad lived to be 2 days shy of his 93rd birthday. Last year it seemed like something was missing under the tree. This year it will be there...the box with the tin of "Daddy's Fruitcake" inside. Fond memories! Mahalo, Bette
Added by A. S.

Years and years ago my grandfather worked for Collin Street Bakery. There was some sort of "mishap" so every year they would send a fruit cake. Even after his death they sent one to my grandmother until her death at 105 in 1993. We have always thought these were the best fruit cakes anywhere! I ran across an ad in one of the newspaper flyers and I am now excited about ordering them again. Thanks for being such great bakers!
Added by Marilyn

When I was in high school in the early 60s, our band sold your fruitcakes every year to raise money. They were a big hit then and we have been buying them every since then! My 91 year old mom (a band mother then) sends one every Christmas to her nephew in Pennsylvania because he loves it! Thanks for a beautiful tradition and wonderful products. I love the new shop and stop there for lunch when traveling from Houston to Dallas or vice versa.
Added by Larry

My first fruitcake was a gift from a friend who had moved to Texas . Everything I have ordered was of good quality and looked so good. I like to surprise friends with a fruitcake at Christmas. It has become a tradition.
Added by Michael

My mom was taught by my dad's mom to make fruitcake (she lived to be 94). Fruitcake, to me, is a true southern tradition. Grandma made hers with all natural ingredients, some of which she grew from her garden. We use to go all around Dallas and Lewisville picking pecans, so we would get a great, fresh variety. Sometimes I cracked nuts until my fingers were cut so bad, but I knew that the "wounds" were well worth it (for the FRUITCAKE)!

Then I would notice the beautiful tins during the 1950's, 60's, and 70's with Collin Street Bakery DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake and all the scenes on the lid. My dad would drive to Corsicana and buy them. It was so close to Grandma's home. I asked "Why aren't you making fruitcake, Mom? Is Grandma going to?" She replied, "We don't have the time." It would take a week to prepare all the food for all my family that came together during the holidays. Many people came for the fruitcake, both hers and Collin Street Bakery's fruitcake.

Grandma died in 1973 and Mom got fruitcake in remembrance of her. There were several tins sitting in the frig and Mom said "Don't no one eat any of that fruitcake." The wait was worth it. For about nine years "visions of fruitcake danced through my head". Then I moved to Kerens, Texas, in 1982 and drove by the bakery for a couple of years before I saw the Collin Street Bakery sign. When I finally noticed it, I almost flipped my car over doing a U-turn. I walked inside and there were those beautiful tins that I remembered from growing up with Grandma.

For about 11 years, this ol' Texas boy was in hog heaven. I would buy fruitcakes all year round and let them get just under room temperature, just enough coolness with a little warmth...the smell...the flavors...memories of family members long gone, but never forgotten. Each bite was a flashback to days I wish still exist. It reminded me of funny things like: Uncle Bob, Uncle Lewis, cousins, Mom, Dad, Grandma, values, principles, morals, ethics, "yes sir", "no sir", "yes ma'am", "no ma'am". It reminded me about when families got together and spent time with each other (no Internet, Twitter, Facebook, text messaging). There was conversation with substance, laughter, sadness, and people cared for each other and felt the joy of being together...doing things, and going places.

Then this morning I had a taste for fruitcake after memories from the past crept upon me. As soon as I finish writing this, I will be placing an order for fruitcake. I have to bear witness to tradition and memories. Collin Street Bakery DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake is one thing I know will bring back something long lost...tradition.

I am panting patiently til the arrival of the four pound DeLuxeŽ fruitcake. This is one thing I can regain and not lose from my days of childhood while living so close to Collin Street Bakery. It is strange how we let things slip away and never have the opportunity to regain them.

Thank you for all the memories and the DeLuxeŽ fruitcake. It's as close as it can get to Grandma's/Mom's fruitcake. It doesn't have to be a holiday to buy all the excellent products from Collin Street Bakery. I will not forget you ever again and will be buying fruitcake throughout the years to come. I have to go place an order now.

This is THE BEST OF THE BEST. No one else even comes close. This is by far the most superior fruitcake worldwide!

Oh my word!!! I received my fruitcake earlier today and I'm here to tell you, it is delicious. It was my first time to order one, but you can bet it will not be the last time. My Mom made them every year up to 1981 when she became ill and passed away on New Year's Day of 1982. This cake is so much like the ones she always made - so moist, full of fruit, pecans, just simply out of this world. Thank you so much Collin Street Bakery for such a scrumptious fruitcake and Happy Holidays to one and all.

I received my DeLuxeŽ fruitcake as a Christmas gift from my brother. As kids, we used to love fruitcake - what a great nostalgic treat it was to receive your fruitcake, but what was even more of a surprise was how delicious it was! I admit to being part of the "underground" when it came to fruitcake - so many jokes are based on some bad experiences - but your fruitcake has made me come out and shout, "I LOVE COLLIN STREET BAKERY FRUITCAKE." I thank you and my brother for this delicious treat! Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year!
Added by Nancy J.

Many years ago I had a wonderful piece of fruitcake. I never cared for fruitcake until I had that piece. I found out it this year that it was from Collin Street Bakery in Texas. I found your site online and purchased my first fruitcake. As a native born Texan I can tell everyone that they've never had a real fruitcake until they've had one from Collin Street Bakery! I now live in Washington state and will be ordering fruitcakes from Collin Street from now on!!!
Added by D. S.

Many years ago, my late mother began sending me a DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake for Christmas every year. After her passing, my youngest sister continued the tradition that Mom began. I just received this year's DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake and savored my first piece. I decided to share my joy to everyone on my Facebook account along with the Collin Street Bakery website so that they all know how good they are.

Traveling to Texas a long long time ago my father discovered Collin Street Bakery and the Fruitcake. For about 10 years or more he always had his Christmas cake delivered. Many years have passed since then (probably over 30). Now he is 81 and probably doesn't expect to receive the gift that I will be giving him. We live in Milan, Italy! I'm fond of this surprise and happy I found you on the internet! Happy New Year to you, Collin Street Bakery.
Added by M.

I laugh out loud that this fruitcake can last for months! In my house it MIGHT last 3 days! My mom can eat a whole medium one by herself and she doesn't get sick (or gain weight). Thank you for a wonderful Christmas tradition! Merry Christmas!

Growing up in North Dakota, we would hear the horror stories and running jokes about fruit cakes. After trying this one, they would never have made the jokes again. We used to get one of these every year for Christmas and it would either last weeks or it would be gone in days. After I graduated and was out on my own, I would get them once in a while as a Christmas treat. Some years ago, the bakery that used to carry these cakes stopped and we couldn't remember the name of the company. I just remembered the tin, as I have a number of them around the house. This year life changed and I was once again looking for my holiday traditional food. I FOUND IT!!! I'm so happy I found this cake again. I'll be making this a holiday tradition that I will carry on now for years. Thank You!!

I have loved fruit cake all my life and, God rest her soul, nobody could beat my grandmother's, until now! My mom sent me one of your fruit cakes for Christmas and I was in heaven. I will be ordering and ordering and ordering from you from now on. Thank you for my making my childhood memories vivid and bright again!

We just finished our fruitcake this morning with breakfast. It was the best fruitcake we have every had and my husband does not eat fruitcake. He is now looking forward to ordering again. Delivery time was great. Couldn't ask for better.

My father has bought me one of your Deluxe Fruit Cakes every Christmas since I can remember (and I'm 57 years old). It has turned into a personal tradition between us that I have grown to cherish. Now he's 93 and he isn't able to continue our tradition, so I have taken it upon myself to continue it on my own. This is the first year I bought one for myself and it makes me a little melancholy -- but it is just imperative that I have one, both for the holiday memories and the excellent quality and wonderful taste of your product -- and the tradition it represents.

I have never been disappointed by your fruit cakes and I love that your product has remained unchanged throughout the years. Please accept this as my personal endorsement of your Deluxe Fruit Cake and an unqualified recommendation to anyone considering purchasing one.

I am 75 years old. I have eaten many fruitcakes, but yours is the best.

Your fruit cakes are the best! After having one miss-delivered, you sent me another one, overnighted. My mother in law was delighted as we had not had a fruit cake in a couple of years. Thank you for your excellent customer service!

Collin Street Bakery DeLuxeŽ Fruitcakes are the best that I have ever had! I never liked fruitcake until I had a Collin Street Bakery DeLuxeŽ Fruitcake that was sent to me by a friend as a Christmas gift. I highly recommend Collin Street Bakery to everyone! You must try it! Delicious! Love 'em!

I live in the UK, London, England, and all my friends say the cakes are fantastic. My mate in New York did not know about you but she does now. All the cakes are great.

I decided to comment tonight, because this is about the 6th fruit cake I have ordered for my mother on a monthly basis. She is bed ridden, suffering from a stroke and has decided in her own Italian way, that she would like to eat fruit cake every day (breakfast and sometimes a lunch snack). The Italians are always known for eating dessert first! Anyway as her health declines, I can't seem to order these gems for her fast enough. This brings her joy and peace in the quietness of her bedroom, downtown in the nation's capital. The city and the politics of DC go on, as she quietly enjoys each bite and I surrender to the fact that with each charge I incur, she really deserves all the best that life has to offer! It is too short! Thanks, Collin Street Bakery, for touching the hearts and families in a way you may never know!
Added by Peter R.

The best fruitcake I've tasted. Will order again when I return to the U.S. later this year.

I got my first fruitcake many years ago from my mother-in-law and now I order them for our children, which is what I am doing now. I love fruitcake and the ones from Collin Street Bakery are the best. My son and daughter-in-law are celebrating their Silver Anniversary and I am taking this to them.
Added by Eva

I live in Germany and ordered your Christmas Cake approximately 25 years ago, with a postcard I had found in a magazine. The Internet did not exist back then. After some years of living abroad, I had forgotten the name of your company. However, I never forgot your absolutely delicious cakes. This morning I came across your company's name at Google and now I'm sure and happy that we will have your incomparable fruitcake this year at Christmas again and my whole family is looking forward to enjoying it again. Best regards from Germany.
Added by Cindy

This is the best fruit cake I have ever eaten. So moist and full of fruit and nuts. I have not doubt the other cakes will be as good. They are shipped and arrive in excellent condition. I never liked fruit cake before, so if you are not sure, try this one and you will order it over and over and over.
Added by Finlander

I have ordered the fruit cake to Finland several times. I really appreciate the taste and quality!

I've ordered a deluxe fruitcake as a Christmas gift for our friends in the States for several years. Collin Street have always provided exemplary service and the cakes have been well received. I was introduced to the company many years ago by a friend in the States who sent one to us here in England. I've been a firm fan ever since. You won't find a nicer cake or a nicer company to deal with. Keep baking Collin Street.

When my father received a Collin Street DeLuxe Fruitcake for Christmas in 1958, it sat in our fridge for several weeks before Mom served it to the family. That delicious cake was gone in one day and we have been fans ever since. Until her death Mom sent me a DeLuxe Fruitcake every year for my birthday. Now I send these yummy cakes to my daughter each year for her birthday and for Christmas. Last Christmas I smiled as I saw her feeding a tiny slice to her two year old son. Collin Street, you are an important part of our family traditions.

My brother had these fruitcakes shipped to family for Christmas while he was living in Japan. He sent a very large one to our daughter while she was serving in Iraq. Her company had been on MREs for months. When she got the fruitcake, she set it on the counter in the barracks. The soldiers would pass the fruitcake and whip out their knives and hack off a piece. I suspect even those who had never liked fruitcake enjoyed that one! I am grateful my daughter got to eat some excellent food while in such a tough place.
Added by Diane

The best fruitcake ever. Now it comes sliced what could be better!
Added by Billy

Always look forward to this time of the year and Deluxe Fruit Cakes. I remember my mother and dad would receive them as gifts from friends who lived in Texas when I was a kid in the early 1950s. Now I'm 63 and I send them to friends and they love them!

I have been buying the Deluxe Fruitcake for many years now. It is the best fruitcake I have ever eaten and the quality can't be beat!

I have ordered fruit cakes from Collin Street for my brother and self several times, and now his daughter also orders for us. Now I have tried the New York Cheesecake, it is just as delicious!!

I have never liked Fruit Cake. When I first ordered gifts from here, I ordered one for my husband. I can't believe how good they are. I love them. Everyone I have ever sent them to just rave about them. It's a wonderful affordable Gift!
Added by Lisa

My grandfather used to buy Collin Street fruitcake every year, for as long as I can remember. Now that he has passed on, it's a very important tradition for me to order one for my grandmother every year. It's not the same if she (and I!) don't get to see that red tin with the delicious fruitcake at Christmas time. Thanks for creating such an important memory, and tradition, for us.
Added by Paula

Never liked fruitcake until I had my first piece of Collin Street Fruitcake 15 years ago. Yum!
Added by pamsilva

When my mother moved in with us, upon her ailment, she brought with her the custom of Collin Street Bakery fruitcake. I had three sons and excitement over fruitcake was less than welcoming a wet blanket. However, the arrival and setting out of said cake for all to smell and see was a different story. It was amazing how quickly it went. The next Christmas, my mother ordered a larger fruitcake, and, the Pineapple Pecan, ( my personal favorite) same sequence of events. The third Christmas, my mother added a Pecan coffee cake. If my beloved mother had lived longer, I dare say we would be up to no less than six or seven. They are a wonderful, wonderful tradition and they never disappoint.

We have ordered from Collins Bakery for years. It is a Texas Icon for generations. Besides history, this is hands down, the best fruitcake your family will ever enjoy. Honestly wonderful, fantastic ingredients, balanced flavor & texture, awesome packaging & presentation. Have confidence you are sending absolutely the best.

Added by Allison

My grandfather used to send my father a Collin Street Deluxe Fruitcake every Christmas. When my grandfather passed away (at 94!) my sisters and I wanted to make sure we carried on the tradition. It's been a staple for my dad every Christmas but he is still always excited when he receives that box in the mail.
Added by John

My Grandfather would send me the Deluxe Fruitcake for the holidays every year. It was always the best edible gift and I have always remembered it. In turn, I give them to my sons and family every year as a lucious desert treat. NO ONE makes better fruit cake!
Added by amason

After meeting my husband, I discovered that he ordered your Deluxe Fruitcake every Christmas. I declined the first time he asked me to try it. I never liked fruitcake until I tasted yours. Now we practically fight over the last piece. We also send my mother-in-law one for Christmas and she loves it too. Thank you Collin Street for making a truly delicious fruitcake - all other fruitcakes are just poor imitations of the real thing! =)
Added by Angela

My first experience with the DeLuxe fruitcake was in high school when we sold them for pep club about 40 years ago. I've loved them ever since and have tried to duplicate them in my own kitchen (somewhat successfully). Can't wait for my next taste treat from Collin Street Bakery!
Added by deborra

Since childhood Christmas meant fruitcakes. My father would bake THE BEST cake I ever had! Now Dad is 85 and would make me one if I asked for one. But a number of years ago a friend gave me a Collin Street fruitcake and I was blown-away. I now order one from Collin but I won't tell Dad!

When I want to remember some of my fondest childhood Christmas memories, I eat a piece of Collin Street Bakery's deluxe fruitcake. It's wonderful to know that in this crazy world, some wonderful things never change!
Added by Wendy Wingfield

I received one of your deluxe fruit cakes as a gift this Christmas. Us Brits are very particular about our cakes, especially fruit cake! Can I just say that your cake was the most delicious fruit cake I have ever tasted? The combination of the fruits, pecans and glaze made the cake just divine - I cannot stop eating it!
Added by Valerie

My sister, Maggie, from LaPorte, TX, has been sending me your fruitcake for over 30 years. It is not only the BEST fruitcake I have ever had, it is the ONLY fruitcake I will eat. A true delight that I look forward to each holiday season.

Living in the UK we can't buy cakes like this so it's wonderful that we can order them online. I am presently enjoying a pecan deluxe cake which was shipped to me for Christmas as a present from my elder son. It is a wonderfully moist, fruit and nut filled cake that is extremely "more-ish". I have to exercise strong willpower to only have one piece at tea time so that it lasts. Can't wait for next Christmas! Thanks for the great service and for tempting an Englishman to try something a little bit different.

We ordered a fruitcake for the first time this year. It was wonderful. We will be ordering more often. Thanks Collin Street Bakery!

I am terminally ill with cancer and received one of your Deluxe Fruitcake's, wow! wow! wow!
I am experiencing difficulty with weight loss and food is a big put off, but this deluxe fruitcake is the business 110%+! Incidently, I'm on a trial drug that is also from the States and that has been a miracle to me.
3 cheers for the USA.

My mother made the Deluxe Fruit Cake from Coriscana Texas has been part our Christmas celebration for as long as I can remember. I did not eat it so much when I was little...but growing up I increasingly began to appreciate the wonderful flavors...nothing at all like a cold day, a hot cup of English tea and a slice of your fruit cake.

I just love these fruit cakes. My mother bought them when I was a teen and I continued ordering them as an adult. My husband stated he hate fruit cake, but has changed his mind now. He like the Deluxe fruit cakes just fine!!!! lol

I love the Deluxe Fruitcake. I thought I just loved any fruitcake until I tried another. It's Deluxe from here on out!!!
Added by MARTI

I used to sell these wonderful fruitcakes when in grade school back in the early to mid 60's. I was always able to sell these fruitcakes because they were the best! I also at that young age discovered that this fruitcake was the best-tasting fruitcake around. After I left grade school, my aunt knew of kids in her neighborhood that were selling them for fundraisers like I did and I would ask her to order one for our family, too. I have managed to get one each year since I sold them 50 years ago and now with the age of computers, I can order it online which I do each year. Nothing like a Collin Street Bakery Fruitcake!

Are you kidding me??!! Stays moist and delicious in fridge for months.......ours never makes it to the fridge, we eat one in one day so I always order two. Love these fruitcakes and my brother looks forward to getting his every year.
Added by Joanie

I have been eating this fruitcake since the 1950's and they are exactly the same now as then - with the exception of the price. But then again everything else has gone up as well. Despite all of the jokes about fruitcakes being used as door stops, or being given away as "the joke gift" within a family for years on end, I can assure you these things do not apply to Collins Street Bakery's fruitcake. This is the best fruitcake made in the U.S. and competes very favourably with European fruitcakes that have come from bakeries that have hundreds of years of tradition behind them.

One little tip I have, although it is a bit of gilding the lily a bit, is to slice it into 1/2" thick slices and then pop it in the toaster, give a light toasting (do not give them more than just a tinge of browning, and then spread a bit of butter or cream cheese on the toasted slices. The warming really gives the seasonings a zing and tells you exactly how good this recipe really is.

I can not speak highly enough about the level of customer service recieved from Collin Street Bakery!
Xina and Mr Crawford went out of their way to help us! This was a product requested from a long time fan - that wanted to share the wonderful product with friends and colleagues.

I have been giving Collin Street Bakery fruitcakes for over fifty years and there are none better.
I stopped making my own when I discovered Collin Street as they use none of the horrible
bitter citron that turn people against fruitcakes. They are loaded with delicious fruits and the
best huge pecans in the world. Every recipient tells me they are so happy that they got the
same gift "again". You cannot go wrong. Great for shipping to any one in the military. They
will love it. Merry Christmas to all With Wishes of Peace throughout our world....

My dad ordered these fruit cakes for us as a Christmas treat when we were young kids. I forgot about them for some time until my sister reminded me of them.

I've never liked fruit cake before, until a neighbor of mine gave me two boxes for Christmas. Some one had given them to him and he wanted to get rid if them, so he gave me both boxes. I gave a friend of mine one box and kept the other. I came back from vacation and here is this fruit cake, Ok I'll try it. Boy oh boy when I opened up that tin and saw all those pecans on top of that cake I was in pecan heaven. Any thing with that much pecans has to be good. So I'm hooked. My friend and I can't stop talking about those cakes. I WILL BE PURCHASING ME A CAKE IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

The best fruitcake in North America could not stand the thought of eating fruitcake until my Aunt sent our family one for the holidays from then on I was hooked! Very unique flavour, moist, great package as well!

A+++!
Added by Marion

These are the best fruitcakes in the world! I first bought them many years ago but lost the information as to how to order them. Then I saw them discussed by a Chef on the Food Network as "the best fruitcake he had ever eaten." When he mentioned that the cakes were from Texas, I knew they were the ones I had liked so many years ago. So now I am back as a regular customer and enjoying the cakes so much!
Added by PRINCE VICTOR

I have been buying this cake for every Christmas for longer than the last 20 years. It is delicious and I love it. My family loves it.
