Good fruitcake north of Seattle
I find the Costco fruitcake too sweet, and most of the mass-market fruitcakes in the grocery stores to be unexciting. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good bakery, grocery store or mass-market fruitcake north of Seattle that I can pick up in person? I don't want to do mail order or make my own this year.
If you know anyone who is heading out to the Methow Valley for cross country skiing, ask them to pick up a fruitcake for you at the Cinnamon Twisp bakery in Twisp. Not too sweet, well aged, a good amount of liquor.
As a follow-up, I found a Grandma's fruitcake as made by the Beatrice Bakery, at Fred Meyer. It gets some good reviews on some of the online sites; I found it to be just OK but somewhat on the sweet side. A good amount of nuts, but the fruit is pineapple, cherries and raisins only.
