You'll be adding Good Brandy or Good Rum to top when this cake come out of oven. Do not be shy with the Brandy or Rum, this is what makes this cake good.Then wrap it in cheese cloth.Then every 3 days, top it with more Brandy or rum. I use a real good Brandy. Its makes it take out of this world!!! After a week its ready to cut. This recipe goes back a long time in my family. 1800's.. Please enjoy!! Colongo
