The thing I find awesome is they are vacuumed packed, and have a shelf life of 9 months or more, it's not sickening sweet, it's not dry, and it has loads and loads of flavor. We had the vanilla and the chocolate chip and they were both so good. The larger rum cakes are packed in a re closable container . These can last up to 6 months or longer frozen.  need to worry because of the baking process these cakes have less than 0.5 percent alcohol.

Vanilla Rum Cake, Coconut Rum Cake, Cinnamon Pecan Streusel Rum Cake, Chocolate Rum Cake, Banana Rum Cake, Raspberry Rum Cake. 32 oz and mini's. Their newest flavor is the chocolate chip and I will say this yummy, this is a chocolate lovers dream cake.
