Bake cake mix as directed on package. Remove from pans to cool. Rewash
pans and put cakes back in them when the cakes are completely cooled. It is
best to use 2 8-9″ round cake pans but you can use an oblong pan if you
want. After cakes have been place back into pans (top side up), prick them
with utility fork at 1/2″ intervals. Meanwhile, dissolve each flavor
separately in 1 cup boiling water. Carefully pour one flavor gelatin over
each cake layer (if using oblong pan you must use the same flavors for the
2 pks).
Chill 3-4 hours. Dip one cake pan in warm water for 10 sseconds, then
unmold cake layer onto serving plate. Top with about 1 c. cool whip. Unmold
second cake layer and carefully place on first layer. Frost with remaining
topping. Chill. Great moist’n fruity cake especially for those who like a
light, refreshing cake that is not too sweet.

Jamaican Wedding Cake (also Known As Black Cake)

Ingrients & Directions


1 lb Raisins
1/2 lb Currants
1/4 lb Prunes
1 c Dark rum
1 1/2 lb Packed brown sugar (3 1/4
-cups)
1/2 lb Butter
6 Beaten eggs
1/2 lb Flour
1/2 ts Baking powder
1 ts Mixed spice (nutmeg,
-cinnamon, cloves and
-allspice)
1/4 lb Mixed fruit peel
1/4 lb Chopped nuts

Wash and dry fruit, then put through food processor to chop. Soak in 3/4 c
rum in covered container for at least three weeks, stirring every few days.
When ready, make cake:

Heat 1 pound brown sugar in heavy bottomed frying pan until melted; simmer
until dark dark dark brown. Let cool (If you live in a city, you can
probably find “burnt sugar” in specialty markets like West Indies, and some
Latin markets. The commercial sugar makes a blacker cake.

Cream butter and remaining brown sugar. Add eggs a little at a time. Add
soaked fruits with their liquid, and enough caramelized sugar to make it as
dark as desired. Add dry ingredients and nuts.Pour batter into 9 or 10″
springform pan, greased and bottom lined with waxed paper. Bake at 300
degrees for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Sprinkle some of the remaining 1/4 cup
rum over cake immediately after removing it from the oven. Repeat a few
times. Allow cake to remain in pan for 2-3 days.

ICING THE CAKE

Remove cake from pan and place on cake plate. Roll out almond paste to a
circle big enough to drape over the cake, covering top and sides. Smooth
tightly over the cake and trim bottom edges. Allow to dry for a day before
adding royal icing.Make Royal Icing (this is an icing that becomes quite
hard): Beat 2 egg whites to a froth. Add 1 pound confectioner’s sugar, a
little at a time on low speed. Add juice of one lemon and continue beating
until stiff peaks form.

Using a knife dipped in hot water, spread icing over the almond paste. DO
NOT LEAVE UNUSED ICING UNATTENDED…IF YOU HAVE TO STOP, MAKE SURE IT IS
COVERED WITH DAMP PAPER TOWELS, OR COVERED AND REFRIGERATED. This icing
hardens and dries up quickly. A second layer of icing may be applied when
the first has dried. Decorate as desired.
