    it was quick and easy to make and delicious  -  23 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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 USA and 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 USA and Canada)
