Need a care package for a college student? We can help with that!

Is your niece, nephew, grandchild or first-born heading back to college this month? Returning to school after summer vacation can be tough, but Wicked Jack’s Tavern is here to ease the transition!

Want to score brownie (or rum cake) points by being a college student’s favorite uncle or grandpa? Send your deserving age-appropriate scholar a 33-ounce chocolate rum bunt cake—enough to share with friends.

And, our treats are wicked travelers. We seal each delicacy to hold in every ounce of moisture possible. This means our cakes stay fresher, longer, even when traveling hundreds of miles over a few days.

Our cakes are a delicious treat to start off a senior year, or for a graduate student returning to school. But, don’t worry. We have those underclassman covered as well, with Wicked Jack’s Tavern coffee and biscotti.
