Partake In Traditional Bermuda Fruit Cake

Bermuda fruitcake

Bermuda fruit cake was traditionally served up during weddings. It was the cake that most brides chose. Back then the entire three tier wedding cake was all fruit cake. However, today a typical three tier wedding cake would have at least one tier that was fruit, one plain and the other something special for the bride and groom. Most bakeries on the island sell fruit cake either by the slice, by the slab or you can order a whole cake for your family and friends.
