Holiday Hostess Idea From Island Treasures Gourmet

As we all start planning our menu for the upcoming Thanksgiving dinner and holiday dinners sometimes, it can all be a bit overwhelming. I know that I like to plan early with menu ideas because I just love Island Treasure Rum Cakeseverything to be perfect for family and friends. I love to cook but to be honest, my baking skills have much to be desired so finding that perfect dessert is always on the top of my mind throughout the next couple of months. A great solution that I am going to be utilizing this year is Island Treasures Gourmet Rum Cakes

Throughout my life, I have had many different varieties of rum cakes including homemade and store bought. One thing that I look for with a good rum cake is the flavor (of course) and the moistness. Island Treasures Gourmet Rum Cakes are made in Virginia and hand glazed with rum made from a legendary Hawaiian recipe. Their cakes are drool worthy for sure and everything that I look for in a great rum cake I found with these little 4 oz. cakes.

I received their Chocolate and of course, the coconut, but they do offer a couple of others to choose from like their Vanilla, Banna, Raspberry and Cinnamon Pecan Streusel. These are sold two different ways one is the 32oz and the 4oz (perfect for individual servings). 


The best thing about these cakes is that you can really dress them up for entertaining very easily. You could add fruit to the centers or a simple drizzle of your favorite syrup. Personally, I love the coconut rum cake with caramel (I know. I just love my caramel).

The small 4 oz cakes come sealed in a plastic so that these little bites of heaven can be stored for several months if you are like me and want to start planning early. Both of the flavors (chocolate and coconut) could not be better! They were super moist and really had a great light texture. The flavors were all very nicely rounded with the rum and coconut or chocolate. These little babies would also make a wonderful gift throughout the year. Check them out!! How would you make your Island Treasures Gourmet Rum Cake shine?
