In many parts of Colombia, especially in the south Pacific, children’s parties are celebrated with Torta Negra. The alcohol in the cake evaporates during baking and even the youngest children learn to eat it, and enjoy being served this for their celebrations. In the northern coastal areas, we serve it during the Christmas holidays and for New Year. This Torta Negra is so good that I like it better before it goes into the oven!
