We haven’t made these, but have heard reports that you can:

  • Strap them on your shoes for Ice Skating.
  • Put one in the trunk of your car to aid with traction.
  • Grab a couple when you want to get in shape – they’re great hand weights
  • Use fruitcake next time you need to put your car up on blocks.
  • Hollow out to make a festive picture frame.
  • It comes in handy with a wobbly table or chair. Slice off as much as you need and put it under the short leg.
  • Use as speed bumps to foil the neighborhood drag racers.
  • We’ll bet you didn’t know fruitcake makes a handy hammer.
  • Kids can use fruitcake to make an indestructible fort. We’re waiting for someone to build a house out of fruitcake.
  • You could use fruitcake as the weights on a grandfather clock.
  • Fruitcake makes a colorful sail boat ballast.
  • Scuba dive weight.
  • Hollow out to store valuables – no one will touch it, so your valuables will stay safe!
  • It would even be useful as a counterbalance weight on a cantilever crane.

We’ve been told that fruitcake is what is really keeping the Space Needle from being blown over.
