2010 INTERNATIONAL Fruitcake Challenge: Third Place and Fourth Place

Sally Phennicie (left) and Holly Walker (right) are getting ready to taste the four different fruitcakes. They have water to cleanse their palates. They have pens and paper to take copious notes.

Sally LOVES fruitcake. Holly does not.

Sally is a former banker. Holly co-owns Compass Travel and is Tomie's travel agent.

They are uniquely qualified to be the 2010 Fruitcake Challenge judges.

Sadly, American Anne's fruitcake came in fourth position. It was declared "not a 'real' fruitcake."

Canadian Jennette's alternate entry came in third place. "Dense and dark - overcooked."

More information to come regarding a winner.
