 Now go ahead and select a large mixing bowl, measuring cups, etc.  

Check the rum again to be sure the rum is of the highest quality:)

  Pour one level cup of the rum in a glass and drink it as fast as you can.

Add 1 seaspoon of thugar and beat again.

Meanwhile make sure the Rum is of the highest quality.  Try another cup!
Sopen a second quart if necessary.  Add 2 arge leggs, 2 cup fried druit and beat till high. 

 If druit gets stuck in beaters, just pry loose with drewscriver.  

Sample Rum again, checking for tonscilticity:))))

  37. Hi Evelyn,
    I just saw this. I love to make rum cake. I actually almost got fired once because I made a rum cake for work. I told my boss to beware of the bottom of the cake because that is where the sauce goes - the bottom. He apparently didn't listen and was walking around funny all day. He's a recovering alcoholic and hadn't had a cocktail in 17 years. Honestly, I would not have made that cake if I had known. Other than that incident, I make a mean rum cake. When you let yourself not cheat but enjoy a piece, try the dark rum. Much better. Save the light stuff for egg nog. Great joke, by the way.



Thank you so much for your sweet comments:)))
