    Traditionally for jamaican weddings the cake is usually a black cake ( jamaican rum cake), but since the resort charges too much for me to have one, I still wanted to give my guests a sampling. I couldn't find jamaican black cake that was packaged to go (if anyone has a vendor let me know), so I decided to go with these bacardi mini rum cakes. My friend went to the Bahamas recently and brought me a mini tin and the cake is pretty good. You get a good amount of cake, and I don't think they are that pricey either, you get a case of 48 4 oz mini cakes for $168. The tin is about 4-4.5 inches in diameter and there are 3 different flavors - pina colada, Original rum cake, and chocolate rum cake (the one my friend gave me). I plan on adding them to my OOT bags, as long as I can work out the shipping details.

            What about tortuga rum cakes? I know there is a shop in Ocho Rios and you can order them online too. I was thinking about ordering them too. They sell 6 packs of 4 oz cakes in variety of flavors.

                  That was my first choice! The prices however were a little bit too high for each 4oz cake. I should see if I can get them cheaper in Jamaica.

                    I love Tortuga Rum cakes.... we still have a couple left over from our last cruise that we're saving for a special occasion.

                      I saw small (4oz) traditional black rum cakes at a coffee store in the airport in Montego Bay. They were about $5 USD each. Pretty sure you'd be able to find them at Blue Diamond on your way in as well.
