To kick off the holidays “tastefully,” Island SPACE Caribbean Museum is collaborating with Caribbean Professionals Network and a number of South Florida bakers to present the Rum Cake and Caribbean Black Cake Fest. Cake makers will offer tastes of traditional Latin-Caribbean rum cake recipes as well as the dark fruit cake or plum pudding recipes popular in the British Caribbean islands, and affectionately known as “black cake” to many Caribbean nationals.
At this first public museum fundraiser for the giving season, attendees will have the opportunity to sample the variety of cakes, as well as light holiday beverages, while Caribbean holiday music plays in the background. Guests are welcome to sample the tropical flavors and to explore the museum to learn about Caribbean history, culture and art.
Attendees will be treated to a special guest appearance, by “Ready Set RUM”, a popular YouTuber who does rum tasting reviews on distilleries throughout the Caribbean region and beyond. Visitors will also have an opportunity to win a copy of “The Cake Bible.” General museum entry is $10 per adult and $5 per child. The facility is open Thursdays through Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m. and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Donations, sponsorships, memberships and volunteer commitments are encouraged.
