Top Review by Peacemaking Rebel

This cake was awesome! When I added the pie spices I didn't add cloves but instead did cardamom, and of course included the usual cinnamon and nutmeg. It was moist and just delicious... also I did part of the cake without rum glaze, but instead made a rum, cream cheese and cool whip frosting, sweetened with some agave... either is delicious....

five stars for sure and will be making this again!
