The Perfect Yuletide: El Dorado 5 Years Old Rum Christmas Fruit Cake
Sugar. Spice. And everything nice. These are the ingredients chosen to create the perfect fruit cake. But Spun Spirits deliberately asks for a specific ingredient to the recipe ... El Dorado 5 Years Old rum. Thus the El Dorado 5 Years Old Christmas Fruit Cake is born. Using their ultra-palate, SPUN Spirits and Basuki’s Bakery join forces to commit 10% sales of El Dorado 5 Years Old Rum Christmas Fruit Cake to charity.
EVERYTHING NICE IN THE RUM FRUIT CAKE
The margarine-free cake is made with premium Dutch butter, dried fruits and spices. It has no added preservatives and is fed with El Dorado 5 Years Old rum for at least two weeks and sometimes three. This helps to moisten and extend the shelf-life of the cake.
The rum that is soaked up by the cake imparts depth to the vanilla and fruit notes as well as enhances butterscotch creaminess without adding saccharine sweetness.
“Flavourful spirits with higher alcohol level and complexity such as El Dorado 5 YO rum are ideal for feeding fruit cakes,” shares Aunty Ling who runs Basuki’s Bakery. “It also helps to elevate the taste and texture as well as accentuate the spices.”
SEASON OF GIVING
For this season of giving, SPUN Spirits and Basuki’s Bakery commit to part 10% of sales of El Dorado 5 Years Old Rum Christmas Fruit Cakes to Ray of Hope, a crowdfunding charity registered in Singapore where 100% of the proceeds go to verified needy individuals.
