Delicious rum cake

Nothing beats cake. Good cake is my favorite dessert, not ice cream, not pie, not cooked fruit (especially not cooked fruit unless it is in a pie or covered in chocolate, come on!), not tortes, not mousse, not cookies, not brownies. CAKE!

Imagine my delight to show up at work today to find that one of my employees has brought in a rum cake from Wrights Gourmet House in Tampa, Florida! She carried it through security and it was one of her two carry on items.

This was no ordinary rum cake. Often the only thing rum cake has going for it is the rum. Oh no, this cake was a rich buttery pound cake type of affair with a rum glaze and pecans. I have to say that it is one of my favorite cakes now. Wrights' cake is beyond compare. Do not make it yourself. Call them and order one to be delivered. While you are at it order some Cuban sandwiches too.

I love rum in cake! Those wonderful little Turkish rum pastry things (Bab al Rum?) are some of my favorite things in the world.
