A Bahamas Wedding & Holiday Treat


You have heard our wedding professional talk about it and for Day 5 of our “Bahamas Wedding 25 Days of Christmas” series we are sharing it with you a Bahamas wedding and holiday treat.

It’s fruit cake and we feel it would make an interesting desert to offer your guest at your Bahamas wedding this holiday.

Bahamas wedding treat Bahamian Fruit cake

Fruitcake is a cake made with a combination of chopped candied and dried fruit along with nuts, and spices.

And in the Bahamas, not only is the fruitcake soaked with rum, but the ingredients are as well.

In fact all of the candied fruit, walnuts, and raisins are placed in a container and soaked with the darkest variety of rum for as long as 3 months in advance of baking the fruitcake. And once the cake is baked rum is poured over it.

And with all that spirit it’s no wonder it’s a holiday favorite.
