Fruit cake with rum

Postby DingleDel » Fri Jan 22, 2016 7:40 pm

I am so not a baker, I make very basic things like oat cookies or simple biscuits. I don't really make cakes apart from my annual Christmas cake which I only started making a few years ago so even that is very much trial and error.

I had this mad idea of making myself a cake for my 50th, we are hoping to have a party but not until later on in April which was the only date the hall was available.

Now I have some time to practice a few different recipes but one thing that does come to mind was our Wedding cake. It was made by a lovely Jamaican lady and so many people commented on how gorgeous it was. It wasn't like your average fruit cake, the fruit had been chopped finely (or perhaps lightly blended?) and it was laced with rum! :lol:

Any thoughts please?

Find the lady who made it and order another one. :roflmao:

I used to make a Christmas cake every year but only used a small amount really for visitors as we seldom eat cake. I was throwing it out by Easter so don't make one now.

Good luck if you are baking one.

Did it have more exotic fruit like pineapple?

Not that I would have noticed Carolyn, I would say it had the usual dried fruits that any standard fruit cake would have. My mum doesn't like the texture of fruit cake but she ate some of my wedding cake....I am presuming it was because the fruit had been blended.....or perhaps it had so much rum in it she didn't care! :roflmao:

No idea how to make cake but just wanted to clarify something. Does this mean your birthday card this year should have a 50 on it. Only asking so I can plan your card for the birthday club.
