Will you eat 100-year-old fruitcake found in Antarctica ?

The researchers reckon they could just about have eaten the cake- if they were allowed

The trust carried out conservation treatment including rust removal and chemical stabilisation - but the cake itself was absolutely fine.

The fruitcake, made by British company Huntley and Palmers, was found in "excellent condition" inside a iron alloy tin, still wrapped in paper. It's been documented that Scott liked this particular brand of cake.

The Antarctic Heritage Trust found a almost edible 100-year-old fruitcake in the oldest building in Antarctica, according to reports Thursday.

The Antarctic Heritage Trust has recovered a 100-year-old fruit cake on Cape Adare in Antarctica, where famed explorer Robert Falcon Scott's team was likely based for the Terra Nova expedition. His team of five eventually reached the geographic South Pole on January 17, 1912, only to find that a Norwegian team led by Roald Amundsen beat them by 34 days.

Conservators with the New Zealand-based Antarctic Heritage Trust (AHT) recently found perfectly preserved fruitcake believed to be more than a century old.

But the ladies, including Bethenny Frankel and Tinsley Mortimer , wanted Luann to address how it made her feel, not how it looks. "Th Real Housewives of New York " star Luann D'Agostino and Tom D'Agostino are divorcing after just seven months of marriage .

In a statement, Lizzie Meek, the Trust's Programme Manager-Artefacts, described the cake as "an ideal high-energy food for Antarctic conditions, and still a favorite item on modern trips to the Ice".

And apparently, it looks and smells nearly edible.

The extreme cold climate may have helped in preservation of the fruitcake. Its Northern Party may have taken shelter in the hut and left the cake behind.

"Deacidification of the tin label and some physical fix to the torn paper wrapper and tin label was also carried out", the Trust said.

After the procedures, the cake and all the artifacts found will be returned to the site.
