I got this recipe from Pioneer Woman for a rum cake - looked less complicated than the one my mother always made, so I thought I would give it a whirl for Bubbie's birthday. The only thing I did differently was to use Captain Morgan spiced rum...yum!
Basic cake mix, spiked with rum, with vanilla pudding for extra moistness
It has pecans and a sweet rummy glaze, too. Of course, this made the teenagers act the fool, thinking they're getting away with something by actually getting some alkeeyhol. My daughter informed me that perhaps I had gotten Bubbie's age of 12 confused with Firstborn's of 21...har dee har.
And Bubbie was too into his new mp3 player to get too excited about the rum, anyhow. Yes, that is a single candle in the center of the plate that plays the birthday song. I will do better on this next year - promise!
Happy Birthday to the best stocking stuffer I ever got!
