Looking for Vanilla Rum Cake like the ones in Miami!

Is any one familiar with the vanilla rum cakes sold in miami for birthdays and weddings? I have tried the box mix recipe and
the one in Roses book with the syrup but they are not the same. They use a denser cake with the syrup.

Helpppppp.

In “Maida Heatter’s Cakes”, ISBN: 978-1-4494-0114-6 is a Key West Rum Cake and includes a Rum syrup.  I’ve never tried this cake. I hope this helps you.

Which of Rose’s cakes did you try?

Is it a pound cake texture, or a fruit cake texture?  Pound cake is very dense, but tender and buttery.  Fruit cake would be less buttery and less tender.  Or is it a yeast-based cake?

Perhaps try Rose’s classic pound cake recipe, syruped with rum instead of lemon.  The baby bundt size is in the front of TCB, while the full-size bundt is in the wedding cake section at the back. 

If you have RHC, use the recipe for the mini poundcakes syruped with Navan- sub dark rum for the Navan.  It’s the same cake recipe as in TCB, but has a liquor-based syrup all ready to go.
