How long do you usually keep a fruitcake?
You'd probably have it for a while, heat it up and eat it with some custard every now and again... and then get rid of it after a few weeks.
Well, apparently your fruitcake can stay fresh for A LOT longer than that!
A 100-year-old fruitcake was found in Antarctica recently and scientists think it's "almost edible"!
The cake was found in the continents oldest building, which is a small hut located by Cape Adare.
The cake was wrapped in paper and still settled in its original tin, meaning that the guys who brought it obviously just weren't feeling like fruitcake for dessert.
National Geographic has reported that the cake most likely belonged to Robert Falcon Scott, an explorer who came to Antarctica in 1910.
But our question is, how does a fruitcake last 100 years?!
Was it because the continent was so cold?
Was it because it was unwrapped?!
Damn... now we want fruitcake...
Anyone for fruitcake?!
