    Rum cake on platter

    This is the most popular cake recipe on my site. Maybe because it's a tried-and-true recipe which makes the moistest cake. It's the one cake I know of that gets better as it ages. Although, most of the time it doesn't last very long. It's also the perfect cake for mailing. The rum acts as the perfect preservative. It freezes beautifully also.

    This is my husband's favorite cake recipe. I think it's because he's not a big sweet eater, and the cream cheese frosting cuts down on the sweetness.

    For a slightly different recipe, try this one for Raspberry Red Velvet Cake.

    All that coconut and toasted nuts are what make this cake taste so good. It's pretty to look at too.
