DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare and cook the cake according to the package's directions, allow to cool and refrigerate long enough to allow the cake to solidify somewhat, 1-2 hours. This step makes it much easier to handle and slice prior to icing it.
  • Empty the can of frosting into a bowl large enough to give you some elbow room to stir the rum in, and add rum and whisk a little at a time. I'm only estimating, but I think I ended up adding about 4 ounces, and it produce a really smooth, creamy, easy to spread frosting.
  • Frost the cake per your liking. I took the step of slicing it across so I could have a layer of frosting in the middle. Enjoy!
