Tips for Spiced Rum Cake
- For drizzle without rum, you can substitute milk or water.
- If you prefer a thicker drizzle, add additional powdered sugar, one Tablespoon at a time, until you reach the consistency you prefer.
- You can substitute any flavor of rum! There are so many to choose from, and you can mix and match for cake and frosting. Try pineapple rum or vanilla rum.
