'A very dense cake which takes on a pudding-like texture in the mouth. This is a typical black cake which is full of fruity flavours with a slight bitterness from the alcohol.'
'Its incredibly rich but is a traditional Christmas cake in the Caribbean so only the best ingredients are used. we enjoyed this example.'
'This is a very well-made traditional cake. The texture is moist and yielding, while retaining its structure well.'
