A gift from my aunt
The gold bracelet was a thank you gift from one of my maternal aunts. Sis had volunteered my services to bake a Jamaican Rum cake for her 60th birthday party. I think they were talking and I my sister mentioned I baked cakes and also did some decorating. So after Sis volunteered me, she told me about it. Normally, I used to just bake for my nuclear family but I agreed.
So I soaked the raisons in rum for about a month or two, and made the big cake. She has a big party at a posh hotel - a four three course meal with dancing, and Sis and I carried it down.
This is a faded photo of it in my kitchen. Here theme was yellow so I made flowers with yellow petals. I put her name of the board but cut that out for her privacy reasons.
And she was very happy with the finished product especially when someone rang her to say it was one of the best Jamaica cake he'd ever tasted.
