There is little that can surpass my mom’s traditional Caribbean Black cake, except of course her Sorrel Cake, but the cake decorating she executes on both is simply amazing! This pic actually inspired me to add a section highlighting the many talented crafters I know! My Mom was the first and from an early age got me involved in may arts and crafts.. She has retired from Professional Dressmaking and teaching dressmaking and sewing. classes but f course she has a new “love”
The traditional Trinidad Wedding cake is Black rum-soaked fruit cake. This makes for a Potent treat and some save the top layer for their first Anniversary.
So what do retired dressmakers do well apart from spoiling grandkids, both my aunt and my mom now enjoy cake decorating! Both have a flair for flowers and give classes and workshops! My Mom also does a wedding dress cake (will add that image) assoon as I can get a hold of it!
