    I have had my share of rum cakes. Normally, they start popping all over the place around the holidays. Everybody (including me) has that aunt who can't wait to make rum cake for Christmas.

    What I am wondering is what is the best rum for rum cake? I know there's rum flavoring, but I enjoy using real rum. I think it makes rum cake taste better and authentic.

    I use Myer's rum. It is what I have available so I use it and seems to work for me!

    I use Bacardi dark rum. My family loves it so I have never tried another brand.
