The fruitcake question was met with groans and giggles. My hubby, usually a stoic figure, couldn't help but chuckle at the notion of ancient Egyptians feasting on fruitcakes. He quipped, "Well, if it's good enough for Cleopatra, it's good enough for me!"
Samantha, known for her adventurous palate, was the one who took a bite of that oft-maligned treat and transformed it into a relic from a time long gone. I love the shared wisdom that comes from these encounters. "Who knew ancient Egyptians had such a sweet tooth?" she said, her eyes dancing with wonder.
Suddenly, fruitcake wasn't just a dessert; it was a bridge between cultures and centuries.
