Do you mean a fruit cake? Heavy or light? Or maybe just a caramel cake doused in rum after baking? I'm from the Caribbean and here a rum cake means a fruit/Christmas cake

This is the recipe I use and it is AMAZING.  I like to double the glaze and use a little extra on the cake.
 1 cup chopped walnuts
 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
 4 eggs
 1/2 cup water
 1/2 cup vegetable oil
 1/2 cup dark rum
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup water
 1 cup white sugar
 1/2 cup dark rum
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour your pan.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix and pudding mix. Mix in the eggs, 1/2 cup water, oil and 1/2 cup rum. Blend well. Pour batter over chopped nuts in the pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45-minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. 
Poke holes all over cake with a toothpick then Brush glaze over top and sides. Allow cake to absorb glaze and repeat until all glaze is used.
To make the glaze: in a saucepan, combine butter, 1/4 cup water and 1 cup sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat and continue to boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup rum and butter.
