      I can't believe I'm the first to rate this amazing cake! I discovered rum cake about a year ago and spent ten dollars on a very small one at a fundraiser. It was worth it! I decided to try making it myself this year as potential xmas gifts. This recipe is one of only a few that I found that did not use a yellow cake mix. I actually halved the recipe since it was a test run and did not make the whipped cream topping. I also didn't use brown suger. I used a bacardi spiced rum and the result was amazing! I added vanilla and milk to the glaze since I wasn't making the topping. Delicious and easy- I didn't even use a mixer, just beat it by hand. Thanks so much!
