Ah, the fruitcake. It's a universally hated baked holiday good.

Nancy Masters is the founder of the Independence Fruitcake Festival. On De. 17, the town of Independence, Calif., will hold the celebration for the third year in a row.

Masters talks to Liane Hansen about the sweet treat everyone loves to hate.
