Can kids eat a rum cake?
Yes. 99.5% of the rum in our cakes is cooked off in the baking and boiling process. Although not all kids love the rum flavour in the cake, they can certainly share a piece for dessert with the family.
After I open my rum cake how long will it last?
Once the seal on the vacuum-sealed bag is broken the cake is considered open for consumption. At this point treat it as you would any normal cake. Sitting on the counter optimal freshness would be 3 – 4 days, or you could keep it for up to a week in the fridge.

What is a rum cake?
A rum cake is similar to a pound cake or coffee style cake. The difference is when rum cakes come out of the oven, they're soaked in a rum-based simple syrup to add extra moisture and rich rum flavour. They are a traditional cake that has been around for many years in different cultures. In Nova Scotia, they're an all-occasion cake that many remember their grandmother's making.
