What is a dominecan cake?
I saw that pound cake recipe but how do you stack a cake SOAKED in rum?? WOuld it eat away at the fondant?
I'm sorry that I just saw this. Hopefully it isn't too late!
I have a good friend who is Cuban and always brings Cuban food for me to try. She linked this recipe to me and told me that "Cuban cake" is "tres leches" cake. Here's the link: http://www.tasteofcuba.com/tresleches.html
I remember tasting this once and did not like the texture at all. It was way too moist for me.
Good luck and I hope this isn't too late of a response!
