    You would probably have to see a West Indian style Christmas Cake to attempt a theme. It's commonly called 'Great-Cake', 'Black Cake' or 'Christmas Cake' as opposed to fruitcake, although it's fruit based with a mix of alcoholic additions at the discretion of the chef. Normal methods are similar to my Mums which needed the fruit mix to set a year before cake making time. She added a potion of 2 parts dark rum, 1 part Port wine, 1 Part Falurnum. The cake is dark brown but not 'quite' black as the name may imply. As long as 'basted' monthly with a supply of the same rummy mix, a cake will keep over a year if one has enough will power to stay out of the pantry. Attached is an admittedly poor picture of the last one we have left after Christmas. It does correctly show the colour though. Not really socializing much now it should last us towards summertime. My memories of my Mums versions looked different though as she iced them with a hard white icing then decorated with greens and pink (yep) softer icing paste squeezed from a bag-contraption. Most no longer take the time anymore. But this is as good an image as I can get of ours. And yes - a small sliver was cut and was nice with a quick Guyanese Eldorado Rum-Cream liqueur, Attachment 130351
    if anyone asks

    So basically it is a drunken cake...Me after a slice...

    Derrick, how do you get the "frame" to show what your home screen looks like?

    I use Screenshot Maker Pro. Or did you mean something else?

    What works very well for me is a double tap on the back of the device. Not sure how the newer phones handle that but I think it's similar. No additional software involved!
