For a good part of the last three centuries, it has been a tradition of sorts for the British Royal Navy to bake cakes for special occasions and events. These cakes (including incidentally, the traditional Christmas Cake), typically use the Rum associated with the British Royal Navy, Pusser’s Rum, as an integral part of the recipe.
With that tradition as the starting point, Pusser’s has introduced their own Premium British Navy Pusser’s Rum Cake. Each of these rum cakes contains three ounces of Pusser’s Rum, and it is this rum which is at the forefront of both the aroma and the flavour of the cake.
About three weeks ago I received some emails from a couple of representatives at Pusser’s asking me if I would like to receive one of their Famous Rum Cakes to review. I thought the trade-off was fair, a review for a cake, especially as I have been somewhat curious about these rum cakes for a while now. So I agreed and my rum cake arrived last week.
The resulting review can be found here:
