When the Cake is Rum-Soaked…It Feels Good to be King

We aren’t sure if it is because Wicked Jack’s Tavern is based in the southeast or because we love any excuse to celebrate with cake….No matter the reason, we wanted to wish everyone a festive Mardi Gras!

Every Fat Tuesday, one dessert (overly decorated for Carnival) gets all the attention. A traditional King Cake is often made of dry, flaky, braided dough—shaped in a hollow circle.

This year, start the party off right with a Wicked Jack’s Tavern Jamaican Butter Rum Raisin Cake. Use this moist, spiced bunt cake as the basis for your King Cake. Just melt icing on top and add sugar sprinkles—colored in green, purple and gold.

Don’t forget to tuck a small baby figurine inside. The person whose piece contains the baby, or other small trinket representing luck and prosperity, is King (or Queen) for the day and is responsible for throwing next year’s Mardi Gras party…or at least providing the cake!

A Box of Chocolates vs. Rum-Soaked Cake and Coffee

Eating Rum Cake (As Told by Jack Sparrow)

rumDiving into the chewy, rich goodness of a Wicked Jack’s Rum Cake isn’t something you easily forget. It’s such an experience, that we’re not quite sure how to describe it to someone who’s never had rum cake.

So, we decided to let Captain Jack Sparrow, the most notorious rum lover, describe it in his own unique style.

Realizing you have rum cake in the fridge.

Smelling the cake when you open the fridge…

…and again when you open the box.

Taking that first bite.

Taking the last bite.

When your friends realize you’ve eaten their rum cake.

When you realize there is no more rum, and you are now alone.

True Jamaican Rum Cakes Will Lift Anyone’s Polar Vortex Spirits

Here at Wicked Jack’s Tavern, we like to think of ourselves as optimists.

When the cold hits, snuggle up with your loved ones and a True Jamaican Rum Cake. While everyone rushes to pick up eggs, bread and milk from the nearest grocery store, you’ll be nice and warm with a rich rum cake and plenty of smiles.

To avoid starting 2015 with egg on your face, we are here to help you to achieve that healthy goal.

Who ever said eating smart and eating happy couldn’t be the same thing? If your New Year’s Resolution is to go gluten free, then enjoy our award-winning Gluten-Free Butter Rum Cake! This rum cake features all the delicious and fulfilling tastes you’ve come to love in a True Jamaican Rum Cake—with none of the gluten.

Wicked Jacks Offers Cake for Any Appetite

The average American can gain as much as 10 pounds during the December holiday season. With more attention than ever on healthy living, Wicked Jack’s Tavern is offering a gluten-free dessert option this year—a butter rum cake!

A gluten-free diet excludes a protein composite found in wheat and related grains, including barley and rye. Gluten causes health problems in sufferers of celiac disease (CD) or people with a wheat allergy. Many healthy eaters also believe a gluten-free diet can be attributed to weight loss.

Wicked Jack’s Tavern has been awarded a blue ribbon for being the Best of Atlanta in the Lifestyle/Natural Gluten-Free category. This distinction, designed to celebrate gourmet food products, was awarded at the annual Atlanta Gourmet Market, a temporary, three-day showroom open in mid September.

December Gives Us Many Reasons to Celebrate

Add a Wicked Jack’s Tavern rum cake to any holiday celebration!

This year, Hanukkah, or the Festival of Lights, ends on Dec. 24. This Jewish observance includes lighting a menorah for eight days to commemorate the survival of Judaism.

On Dec. 25, Christmas Day involves special church services and masses to celebrate the birth of Christ and the story of the Nativity. This holiday is combined with many secular winter celebrations, like decorating evergreen bushes and trees to symbolize everlasting light around the winter solstice.

happy holidays

Kwanzaa, a weeklong holiday from Dec. 26-Jan. 1, honors African culture, including the ceremonial colors of red, green and black. First celebrated in 1966, Kwanzaa includes music performances, ending with a feast and gifts.

On Dec. 26, Boxing Day is observed in Europe, Canada, Jamaica, Australia and parts of Asia. Boxing Day started as the day servants would receive a “Christmas box” from their bosses, filled with food, money bonuses and gifts. Now it is known as a day to give back to those in need. It is also a shopping day with large discounts, much like the American “Black Friday” following Thanksgiving Day.

 

Gift a Treat People Want to Eat

A Delish.com poll found “38% of people give away their fruitcakes instead of eating them.” With some fruitcakes lasting two to three months without refrigeration, these indigestible, blocks of cake are regifted and passed from one family to the next. How about this year giving people a treat they want to eat?

In honor of Free Shipping Day on December 18, Wicked Jack’s Tavern is reminding everyone there is still time to order one of our scrumptious rum cakes for delivery by Christmas Day. Get free two-day delivery through Amazon Prime while supplies last and your favorite flavor is in stock!
