More calories filled with love (literally)

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!
