I have a request for a rum cake for a 6 year olds birthday. Although I don't particularly care for that choice for a childs birthday and that is a slight concern. My main concern is; how well does a super moist rum cake stack. My design for this cake is stacked squares. I have done rum cakes before but only single layer. Also, if it has worked for you, have the cakes had any filling and how thick are your layers with or without filling.
Thanks for helping and any suggestions would be great.
I really don't know but I think stacking depends more on you support system than the kind of cake. I have to say that's an odd choice for a child's birthday cake
Geez, Louise, who orders a rum cake for a child's birthday? Do they realize there's RUM in the cake???
OK, now that I have that off my chest - I've done whiskey cakes (same as rum cakes) and they are quite moist. If you plan to stack you better go with something like SPS because a cake round could just sink right into the bottom tier due to the moistness.
As for filling - any tropical fruit filling would be good - mango, coconut, pineapple or any buttercream with those flavors.
Why am I craving a pina colada???
