I have a client who is asking for a black cake with brandy flaver. She does not speak very good english and I am not understanding what she ia asking for. She is from Argintina. Anyone have any idea what type of cake she means??? When I research on line I only find Black Velvet but I dont think this is what she is refering to.

Thank you for your time.

There's a black fruitcake that can be made with brandy, wine or rum:
