Christmas is a time for many traditions, and one of these has to be proverbial fruitcake—the one that no one wants to eat.  This is a fun game to include in your annual youth Christmas party.  To begin, purchase a few plain cakes (or use Twinkies or smaller sponge cakes) in addition to a supply of dried fruits, nuts, candies and chocolates and icings.  Invite the teenagers to divide into teams, with each team creating their own fruitcake.  Just on the merits of appearance (or not!), creativity or taste.
