I’ll admit, I’m not a fan of drinking spiced rum. I prefer the plain ole Barcardi rum. But I do LOVE baking with spiced rum. I happen to make a pretty darn good rum cake with it. Don’t worry, though. I won’t be making a rum cake for this challenge. I have some creative ideas running around in my mind so you’ll have to stay tuned to find out what tasty treat I create!
