This is an easy cake to make because it starts out with a cake mix!

This is an excellent butter rum cake that was easy to put together and resulted in a delicious and moist cake with just a hint of rum flavor. I like how the rum extract does not overpower the overall taste of the cake; it just enhances it. I used my star bundt pan which made it look very elegant. The frosting is just perfect with this cake and, again, that hint of rum extract is delicious. I did omit the pecans only because my kids wouldn't eat it if I put them on. Thanks for the wonderful recipe Juenessa.
