Christmas cake ~ Jamaicans take Christmas seriously. Very, very seriously. And there is nothing that symbolizes how much preparation and forethought goes into the one day than in the baking of the Christmas Cake. Several pounds of dried mixed fruits, prunes, raisins, cherries are purchased and soaked in rum and red wine months in advance and the grumblings about the high cost of basic food items die down as homemakers set out to buy around 20 different ingredients for one dish.
Traditional Christmas fruit cakes don't always have to be decorated in the same traditional style. We think that these gingerbread decorations from BakingMad.com will give your cake at lovely modern feel this year!
