I would like to make a rum cake. I've only ever seen them done in a bundt cake pan. My question is, is there anyway to do a rum cake as a layer cake, or will be final result be too wet? I would like to cover it in buttercream if possible.

I just use a regular cake mix, and sub part of the water with rum. Works just fine. The amount of rum I use is "to taste", so you might want to experiment with a couple to find the right level for your taste. It may also depend on the rum. The kind I used, my hubby brought back from Jamaica 20 years ago, so it was not only super authentic Jamaican Rum, but it was well aged! thumbs_up.gif

Brides who have ordered rum cake have selected apricot filling (I use the sleeve filling) or pineapple-apricot (combo of two sleeve fillings).
