Inspired from a visit to the Cayman Islands, the sweet, rich flavor of the dark rum truly makes this recipe addicting. A fun variation is to use miniature cake or muffin pans, to create individual servings that can be easily served for a party, or wrapped as gifts. Plus, the smaller the size, the more rum glaze per serving which definitely adds to the moisture and zing of the cake.
