Nothing says celebration like cake. Cakes are the quintessential celebratory dessert, as they should be. Layers upon layers of sweetness, covered in beautiful frostings of all sorts and colors. What’s not to love?! And going off of my last Christmas-themed post of 2015, I felt like a boozy cake was in order. This eggnog and spiced rum cake has a plethora of autumnal seasonings. Rum is not only baked into the cake, but is also soaked into it in after the cake has baked.

Finish this cake off with a creamy eggnog frosting that is very boozy. The frosting is made with a touch of cream cheese and it has that delicious,  signature custardy flavor. 

And of course I had to make this a naked cake. It’s the only way I ever want to make cakes ever again. I love embracing all the flaws and imperfections, aka not perfectly frosted sides. What do they call that? Rustic. Yeah, sure. ‘Rustic.’

I’m going to be a little MIA for the next few weeks while I do some traveling to Michigan and Chicago to do research for my upcoming travel guides. I can’t wait to show you guys what I’ve been up to, and can’t wait to start of 2016 with you all! Stay tuned šŸ™‚

I don’t know what it is about naked cakes! There is something comforting about the rustic and handmade look at makes it look beautiful. And then that decoration just makes this cake look gorgeous!

This boozy cake looks soo good but i would like to replace the rum with something as i want the kids to grab a piece. Can you suggest something? Thanks

Hi Shirley! I would suggest substituting the rum for a non-alcocholic ginger beer in the cake, and skipping soaking it once they’re baked šŸ™‚

What an elegant cake! Love the way you decorated it with the berries, minimalist but so pretty šŸ™‚ The rum cake sounds perfect for the eggnog frosting too!

Such gorgeous pictures! I need to step my food styling up a bit. Although my family would just whip off whatever fancy stuff I put on top of a cake, so they could dig in… Can’t wait to give this a try!

Hi! Would you be able to use a rum emulsion instead of the rum inside the cake?

Hi Heather. You could use a teaspoon or so of the emulsion, but cannot substitute it completely.

Hi Sarah
Can we use spiced wine instead of spiced rum?

I would recommend sticking with rum, as wine as a totally different chemical make up and won’t give this cake the boozy punch it needs šŸ™‚
