100 year old fruit cake found in Antarctica

August 13, 2017

A 100 year old fruit cake has been found in Antarctica.

The fruit cake was found in an “as new” condition in a remote Antarctic hut.

It is believed the delicacy was brought to Cape Adare by Robert Falcon Scott’s northern party in 1911, and preserved by the freezing conditions ever since.

The team that found the cake were surprised to find the cake still looked edible, however, it smelt a little bit like rancid butter.

What the cake tastes like after a century on the ice will remain a mystery, as it’s unethical for conservators to taste-test their finds.

The team that found the cake have been on a tour of Antarctica to recover as many items as possible left by explorers.

The project has just wrapped up after a 14-month effort to recover 1464 artifacts, including tools, clothing and other food items.
