      I did two flavors for my cake. The base of my cake was traditional Jamaican rum cake (aka black cake) and two other layers were strawberry short cake.

        We had a layer with strawberry filling & a layer with chocolate. They were both delicious. I think hubby liked the strawberry better though!

          Everyone says that the rum cake is good, but i also really like cakes with fruit in them, like strawberries or raspberries.
          Maybe i'll have to get a few different kinds.

            Rum cake is really good, but not everyone knows how to make it properly. So, you have to be really careful with this of cake.

            Here are some problems that you can encounter with this type of cake:
            - no taste
            - too strong
            - too doughy
            - too many fruit
            - too dense
            - frosting too sweet/no flavor

            In the past, I've eaten many rum cakes that were really great to really disgusting. If your baker can provide a small sample, please try it first.

            FYI, American style fruit cake (http://tippinthescal..../fruitcake.jpg) is not Jamaican rum cake. Jamaican style rum cake is not Tortuga rum cake (http://www.bluemount....ugaRumCake.jpg), which is golden.. Jamaican rum cake is black (aka black cake) (http://www.freewebs.....all_edited.jpg).

              Ours will be Chocolate with Raspberry filling. We haven't decided on the frosting but most likely White Chocolate Buttercream or Vanilla Buttercream. I am really not a fan of fondant...pretty...but not tasty.

                Thanks for letting me know, maybe I'll stick with some fruit fillings to be safe.
                I'm not a big fan of really heavy cream or heavy cake.

                    That looks nice.
                    Some of the guests have been mentioning that they want to try the rum cake so i guess i'll have to make 1 of the layers with that flavor.
