The history of rum sailing the high seas

The end of this month will mark 44 years since the British Royal Navy ended the daily rum rations given to sailors. Called “Black Tot Day,” the practice stopped on July 31, 1970. The traditional started when sailors received a half-a-pint of rum each day, which years later was diluted with water and split into two portions to lessen drunkenness on board the navy vessels.

Wicked Jack’s Tavern True Jamaican Rum Cakes, soaked in fine Jamaican rum, are a great reminder of the tradition of rum in the Caribbean. Virtually every island has a distinct rum style and more than 80 percent of the world’s rum comes from the Caribbean.

In fact, slaves on sugar plantations in the Caribbean discovered that sugarcane molasses could be fermented and then distilled to make a sweet, potent drink. From there rum became synonymous with piracy, with English privateers trading it as a valuable commodity.

What’s in the center of your bunt cake?

Sometimes the biggest surprise is not what is inside our delicious Wicked Jack’s Tavern Rum Cakes. Our adventurous clients add editable treats or decorations to make our cakes the center of every party.

For baby showers or bridal showers, place real flowers in the opening of the bunt cake, which can hide a small paper cup of water.

Next time you order one of our bunt cakes, try placing fresh fruit or a bowl of jam, mousse or whipped cream in the center. For a quick decoration, drizzle extra icing over the top, or add a dusting of powdered sugar or cocoa powder.

Red Velvet Wicked Jack’s Rum Cake is “super moist” and has “tons of flavor”

Traditionally red velvet cakes are red-layered cakes topped with cream cheese icing. However, Wicked Jack’s Tavern doesn’t always follow traditions. Instead of the cream cheese icing on our Red Velvet Wicked Jack’s Rum Cake, we opted for a delicious Jamaican rum glaze, and our fans love it. Don’t take our word for it. Check out what people are saying about our red velvet rum cake.

“I ordered this cake because I love red velvet cake. The cake arrived a day before schedule. GREAT!! and it was well packaged. When i opened the cake I could smell the rum. The cake itself was very moist and soft. Wonderful texture. The rum taste was not too overpowering. I really enjoyed this cake and will try it again after I have tried other flavors from this company.” – Joy

“I had never picked up this brand of rum cake before- I had always used Tortuga. What a difference! Super moist- tons of flavor and yes it has that wonderful rum cake taste like it is supposed to have. I had purchased this and a chocolate rum cake from Tortuga for Christmas with my family. Side by side- I couldn’t believe how dry Tortuga’s was compared to this- and just no taste comparison. Will definitely buy from again.” – satava “private”
