    Bought one o' them store-bought fruitcakes at the supermarket today and thought it could use a good dose of soakin' in a little firewater.

    How is this best done? I was going to gently poke some holes in it with a fork, douse liberally with bourbon, and then wrap it in Saran Wrap, then put it in a ziplock bag.

    Would this work?

    Never done it before, but I don't see why not.

    Or you could skip the Saran Wrap and Zip Loc bags and just use Rubbermaid bowl just barely big enough, depending on the size of the cake and the bowls you own.

    If you try it like that and you ain't happy with the results, send them on to me;e

    You could also inject some good juice with a meat marinator;)

    It's not a big fruitcake. 1 lb. oblong, pre-sliced and it cost $3 so if it doesn't turn out no big deal.

    You've got the right idea. After I bake mine, I poke holes with a skewer and pour single malt scoth into it. I rewrap and do this weekly for 3 weeks. Never tried it with a store bought one, but should be fine.
