I chose this rum cake because it had frosting instead of a glaze and it did not disappoint us! It tasted better the 2nd day, although was still good on day one. It was moist and had just a faint rum taste, which I liked. I don't generally like cakes that taste like they were soaked in rum. Excellent recipe! - 25 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I served this cake for desert Christmas day and thought that it was good, but not exceptional. The chocolate frosting did not sound good to me so I just sprinkled the finished cake with powdered sugar. - 28 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
