WE HEARD THAT THERE IS A BAKERY WITH VICKMANS RUM CAKE RECIPE'S.
CAN ANYONE HELP ??
I have been looking for Vickmans Rum Cakes for years. My wife grew up on Vickmans Rum Cakes and would love to get her one for her birthday. Last I had found about 8 years ago L.A.'s Best Bakery was making Vickmans Rum Cakes but they have stopped making the, If anyone out there knows where I can purchase a Vickmans Rum Cake or get the receipe please let me now.
Vickmans Rum Cakes were Moist multiple layered cakes with custard and cocoa in the center with a light taste of rum. Covered in the best icing I have ever tasted light not overly sweey frosting, This cake is so light it melts in your mouth and leaves an impression on you, you can not forget.
Could you please describe what is a Vickmans rum cake? I have had rum cakes that were 1/2 yellow & chocolate cake with a fruit filling in-between the cake layers and a light chocolate frosting with sprinkles on top. I also have add rum cakes with a custardy filling.
I hear Claro's Italian Market in San Gabriel does a great rum cake. I almost picked one up on saturday, but it lost out to some cannoli and sfogliatelle. I'm not sure what a Vickman Bakery rum cake is like, but might Claro's do?
