I hope you are hungry because that is their biggest cake they sell! Tortuga's Rum Cakes are baked fresh daily in the Cayman Islands with only the finest natural ingredients. The only preservative used is their specially blended "5-year-old", oak barrel aged Tortuga Gold Rum. Each cake is individually hand glazed then vacuum packed, ensuring a shelf life of 6 months, or indefinitely if refrigerated or frozen.
I doubt it will last that long if you have alot of men around, they are gonna gobble this thing up right away! And you can definitely taste the rum in this cake, too! I was feeling slightly giddy but that was because I ate it on an empty stomach and then went back for a little more. Won't do that again! But, really, these cakes are so moist and the aroma of rum will hit you smack in the face! Lord, just thinking about it makes me want another one. I would love to have a bottle of the rum that they make this cake in because it is some of the best tasting rum I have ever had. It adds just the right oomph to the cake and it being chocolate doesn't hurt either. We gave one neighbor a small slice of the cake and I thought she was gonna take the rest of the cake and run! Oh, Happy Days Are Hear Again! Remember that song?
