This cake is not for the weak of heart it's guaranteed to be a crowd winner. I always like to add a shot or two more than what the recipe calls for.

Quite delicious. I usually shy away from cake mixes, but this is an exception! I used Captain Morgan's spiced rum. I poked holes in the cake with a toothpick before pouring the glaze over. Took to work for a party. Rave reviews! I will definitely make again. Thanks!

Easy, Yummy, & MOIST. I was out of regular rum so I used a combination of Coconut Rum topped off with Vodka. Rave reviews from the babysitting co-op moms. Make sure to pour the liquid slowly so the pan doesn't overflow.
