Though fruitcake is not my favorite treat, it would be tempting with coconut frosting! And oh, my...cutting raisins in half...that WOULD be a chore! You have many fond memories to share with your family.
Your family has some very interesting traditions, and I enjoyed hearing about them.

Don't be afraid to use your full 750 word count. What you have here is good, but I was anxious to hear more about your family's Christmas baking traditions. :)
Some delicious memories, but I would have liked to have gotten to know the characters on a more personal basis. Dialogue would probably have brought that out more. :)
