Rum Cake Recipe -

This week Emily shows us how to make a family favorite – Rum Cake!

We typically make this cake for small celebrations, not birthdays. This week we have two daughters who will be celebrating their half birthdays. So this was an easy fix. One cake = 1/2 for one girl + 1/2 for the other. I promise you, once you try this cake you’ll be thinking of all sorts of reasons to make it!
