Got Leftover Bunt Cake?

The best part about Thanksgiving dinner is the leftovers! And dessert is no exception. Here’s a sweet recipe to turn your wicked after-dinner dessert into a wicked after-Thanksgiving breakfast.

bread pudding

Wicked Jack’s Butter Rum Bread Pudding


4 cups Wicked Jack’s Butter Rum Cake cubed

3 cups milk

3 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoons ground cinnamon

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

4 eggs, beaten



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large saucepan, add milk, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and brown sugar. Simmer and stir until sugar dissolves.

In a large bowl, add the cubed bread and pour in the hot milk mixture. Let sit for 30 minutes so the bread absorbs the milk.

Add the beaten eggs to the mixture and stir. Pour bread pudding into a buttered 1 1/2-quart baking dish and bake for 50 minutes.

Doused in American Colonial History

Thanksgiving Day is a great time to reflect on the history of how America was settled by the pilgrims. Allow us to present you a few facts about our rum-loving American colonists.

Colonial America

Americans of the colonial period were not beer drinkers, like the English imperialists. Instead, they were rum guzzlers. Colonizers drank rum heavily in newly settled parts of America, where beer would not keep. They considered it both comforting and refreshing.

Rum originated as a by-product of sugar production on the island of Barbados, an uninhabited island in the West Indies that had been claimed by the English in 1625. Georgia was the last part of the East Coast to be colonized. The founder of the colony, James Oglethorpe, tried to prohibit the sale of rum in Georgia, fearful for the survival of his colony.

Luckily his efforts to push more ale did not succeed. How disgusting…. butter beer bunt cake?

Don’t Stumble in the Dark. Make Quick Single Cup.

As we move closer to winter, the mornings are getting much colder and much darker. If you’re looking to wake yourself up quickly, then try our Wicked Jack’s Tavern SingleCup coffee!

We have four delectable flavors:

Black Gold — Dark Roast Extra Bold

Pirates Blend — Medium Roast

Buccaneer’s Brew — Dark Roast

Jamaica Blue Mountain Blend — Medium Roast


Each pack comes with twelve easy-to-use SingleCups. Wicked Jack’s Tavern SingleCups work with most any Keurig® K-Cup® coffee makers.

No Compass, No Problem

There are plenty of obscure national holidays scattered throughout the year, but our favorite would probably have to be today: National Marooned Without a Compass Day.

If we were marooned on an island with no compass, the only things we’d need are rum and food. But, why not make the best of a bad situation and have two in one, with Wicked Jack’s Tavern rum cake?


In honor of National Marooned Without a Compass Day, we decided to put together a little survival guide.

1. Find fresh water as soon as possible. You can go much longer without food than without water.

2. Build shelter by the beach, so you can quickly signal to passing ships.

3. Get something to eat. Start looking for easily recognizable fruits, or fashion together a fishing spear with a stick, shoelace and sharp rock.

4. Set up a fire at the most visible point on the beach. No matter how cozy that island of yours may seem, you’re going to want to leave sooner or later!

This is Halloween!

Happy haunting to all! Today is Halloween, and as such, it’s a time for some creepy creativity. This year, get wicked with a few of these spooky dessert-decorating ideas.


We hope one of our Wicked Jack’s Tavern Rum Raisin Cakes is taking center stage on your party’s dessert table. But don’t forget to break out the cobwebs, candlesticks, spiders, fog (dry ice), and blood-orange punch filled with gummy warms.

Georgia On My Mind

When foodies from around the world think of Georgia, they picture peaches, peanuts and pecans…with maybe a splash of Coca-Cola.

At Wicked Jack’s Tavern, we are blessed to be a part of this great food-producing state with our headquarters in Marietta, Georgia.

Made in Georgia


Fresh Georgia peaches are available only 16 weeks each year.

Georgia growers produce more than 40 commercial peach varieties.



Georgia produces about half of the U.S. peanut crop.

It takes about 540 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter.


Vidalia Onions

The official state vegetable of Georgia is the Vidalia onion.

The mild flavor is due to the unique combination of soils and climate in the 20-county production area.

Happy National Dessert Day…This Time with Caramel

October is special for many sweet reasons: caramel apples, caramel corn and caramel…rum cake?!

Our Wicked Jack’s True Jamaican Caramel Rum Cake is arguably one of our most popular cakes. It boasts a moist, buttery texture, while retaining the sweet homemade flavor of caramel that we all know and love.


See what our customers have to say about our mouth-watering rum cake!

 “The rum cake was very good. I thought that the cake was moist, well made and had all the qualities that a good rum cake should have. Anyone who has enjoyed a well made rum cake will love this one.”

 “This cake is decadent and delicious!”

“The cake was a gift to the office and I found it GREAT!”

A Wicked-Spiced Butter Rum

Like a hot toddy, this old-world drink is typically a mixture of liquor and water, with honey and spices, served hot. Here’s a wicked recipe for butter rum:

Spiced Buttered Rum

Dry ingredients:
1 teaspoon light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon finely minced lemon rind
3 pinches of cinnamon
1 pinch of ground cloves
1 pinch of nutmeg

Wet ingredients:
Boiling water
1 jigger golden rum
1 generous teaspoon unsalted butter

Place the dry ingredients into the bottom of a mug. Pour in the rum, then fill with boiling water. Finally, drop in the butter.

Smile, and Do Something Nice!

This week and next week, we celebrate two very happy occasions: World Smile Day (Oct. 2) and National Do Something Nice Day (Oct. 5)! That makes this the perfect opportunity to bring a smile to someone’s day.

The Best Coffee and Dessert Pairings for National Coffee Day

September is “Better Breakfast Month” and Sept. 29 is National Coffee Day. To celebrate, Aroma Ridge and Wicked Jack’s Tavern are offering some delicious pairings of fresh-roasted, flavored coffees and Jamaican rum-soaked cakes to make each sip and bite the best combination.

Coffee and Cake Pairings

The moist, buttery vanilla of our Butter Rum cake is a great base for a very flavorful coffee, like BananaNut Rum coffee (made with market-fresh sweet bananas in a cinnamon caramel sauce, drizzled with a butter rum glaze).

The sweet flavor of homemade caramel in our Caramel Rum cake pairs perfectly with Chocolate Creme Brule coffee (a rich, chocolate cream with a caramelized sugar coating) or Chocolate Irish Cream coffee (the finest flavors of Irish Cream topped with chocolate).

For chocolate lovers, the rich Chocolate Rum cake, made with milk chocolate chips, is best paired with vanilla or, for a great combination, try Raspberry White Chocolate coffee (the sweet taste of ripened raspberries dipped in white chocolate).

Replacing the cream cheese frosting with a Jamaican rum glaze, our Red Velvet cake goes best with a nutty-flavor, like hazelnut, toffee, coconut or Mocha Almond Fudge coffee (with intense chocolate fudge and bits of freshly toasted almonds).
