K8, I just HAVE TO SAY IT, (cause I say it out loud a lot to my computer), Your enthusiasm never ceases to amaze me, I get the impression that your brain runs at a hundred miles an hour and there will never be enough time on this earth for you to finish everything!
My mum swears by "listening". Put your ear near the cake when you think it is done. If it "sings" it still needs more cooking. Often times very hard to tell with fruit cake. Have just cut into wedding cake made in July that had stopped singing, it was absolutely perfect. you will know immediately what is meant by singing when you hear it, so I would suggest you listen for it before you know they're done so you'll know when it stops.
