Internet monkey proves holiday fruitcake need not suck

hi! monkey! is one of the internet's gentler souls — if pixelated puppets can be said to have souls. The sweet-natured simian ("i'm small, i'm terry cloth, and i think i have a nice personality!") stars in a click-by-click cooking meditation on how to make a really fine holiday fruitcake. Link, very child-friendly. There is no ironic "gotcha" here, just a puppet baking a cake.
