My sister also went on to make this elegant heart covered rum cake. In Jamaica we call it pudding. We bake it during the holidays and for weddings – its a huge deal really.
The cake batter is mixed with a blend of fruits and rum and wine. The end result is a consistency that is smooth and moist and the flavors are so well balanced it really is like biting into a piece of heaven. I really wish you could taste it. But I will do the next best thing and show you the photos.
I was a bit culture-shocked when we moved to the the states and found out pudding here was more like a custard. I was really missing my cake!
