Whether you call it fruit cake, black cake or rum cake, there is no Christmas without the popular sweet treat of a Christmas cake! Known for putting love in every bite with it’s breads, buns and other pastries, Honey Bun has decided to bake into the holiday season by adding Christmas cake to its tasty portfolio.

Made in Jamaica, the dessert employs the traditional methods along with the company’s authentic recipe. Moist and delicious to taste, Honey Bun Christmas cakes boast the ideal blend of fruits, Jamaican rum, wine and spices to give that homemade taste. Yes, we said it – you will feel as though you blended all the important and necessary ingredients, popped that freshly made cake mix into your oven, cooled it and geared up your palate for a festive consumption.

According to Nashauna Lalah, general manager of The Honey Bun Foundation, the fruits are soaked in the richest Jamaican rum for up to 12 months. “Having any holiday engagements this season? Don’t arrive empty-handed! A Christmas cake is always in style. Looking to treat a family member or friends from yard or abroad? Baked goods are always a great Christmas gift. All you need is some red plastic wrap, a green bow and a little creativity for the perfect cake,” she told Food.

She continued, “If you can avoid the baking rush or the stress of baking altogether by stocking up on this Yuletide essential. Our store-bought desserts are made to take the stress away and make Christmas day more relaxing. Sit-back, relax and count on us. Honey Bun Christmas Cakes will give a true Jamaican Christmas in every slice.” It’s already perfectly packaged, so have fun!

Since this is the season of giving, Honey Bun has offered the gift of Christmas cake baking tips, just for you. Happy holidays!

Honey Bun Christmas Cake Tip

Feeding the cake: To keep the cake moist, dark and packed full of flavor, you can ‘feed it’ by applying additional alcohol every month. Simply unwrap the cake, remove the plastic wrap and leave the baking paper intact. Pour white rum and wine of your choice over the top of the cake, allowing it to soak in, before firmly wrapping it up again.

Freezing the leftovers: If you have leftover slices of Christmas cake, you can freeze them for a later date. Simply wrap them securely in several layers of plastic wrap, place in an airtight container and store in the freezer.

Saving a sliced cake: You can preserve a sliced cake by covering the sliced areas with fresh bread and secure bread slices with toothpicks, then place the cake in a well-sealed container or plastic wrap and store in a dark, cool and dry place to extend the goodness.

Enjoying your cake: Boost the flavors of your Christmas cake by warming it in a microwave for 20 seconds and enjoy with a tall glass of your favorite sorrel mix.

 

Spread the love: Christmas is a time to not only think of our families and those we love but of those who might not have enough. If you can’t volunteer your time, food is a great way of helping out a neighbor in need or a nearby children’s home. Spread the love this Christmas with Honey Bun.
