Pecans toasted in the oven. I don’t toast the ones on top of the cakes. They must get theirs during baking.
Mixing!Portioned into my own little fruitcake pan, bought especially for this service. Little chevrons of pecans are cute here
Done! Now to spray with more Jack and store in the cool pantry until Christmas. They are edible now, yummy in two weeks, but delectable after one month. Because of the alcohol and sugars, nothing will rot or mold or turn rancid. The flavors meld and just become better.
