Dr. Bird Cake

When I was a kid, I went to a bird’s zoo with my grandparents and when my grandmother told me that the hummingbird is the smallest bird on this planet. It was looking so cute that I started crying over there because I wanted to have that bird.

After my grandmother realized that I liked the hummingbird so much, she made Dr. Bird Cake for me and she told me that in Jamaica people call hummingbird cake. So I ate that cake and found it so delicious.

If I talk about today, I miss my grandmother. One day, I was searching regarding this cake on the internet and I got to know why we call this cake as Dr. Bird Cake. Dr. Bird Cake was invented in Jamaica and the national bird of Jamaica is the Humming Bird.
