Tortuga Rum Cakes Review and Giveaway...

We recently had the chance to review a few rum cakes from Tortuga Rum Ltd.

About Tortuga Rum Ltd:
"Our family-owned business is proud of our long tradition of bringing you the very finest Caribbean rum cakes and gourmet products. Explore our wide range of Caribbean sauces, flavored coffees, chocolate treats, gifts and collectibles, authentic and original Tortuga Rum Cakes. - and of course, our Tortuga Rum."

We sampled two flavors of Tortuga Rum Cakes:
Original Golden Rum Cake (with Walnuts)-
"Our most popular Flavor! Our World Famous Tortuga "Golden Original" Rum Cakes with Walnuts are baked fresh daily in the Cayman Islands with only the finest natural ingredients, including imported walnuts. The only preservative used is our specially blended "5-year-old", oak barrel aged Tortuga Gold Rum. Each cake is individually hand glazed then vacuum packed, ensuring a shelf life of 6 months, or indefinitely if refrigerated or frozen."

Florida Orange Rum Cake-
"Generous portions of 100% Florida orange juice add the citrus flavor to this delectable cake. A taste of Florida in every bite!"

What we thought: Both cakes were moist and soft and flavored really well. The orange was a really nice flavor combination for the spongy cake infused with rum. The original cake was also quite a treat:) The rum taste of these cakes isn't too terribly overpowering. Tortuga Rum Cakes would make great gifts or beautiful centerpieces on your holiday dessert table. Tortuga Rum Ltd. makes more than just cakes...they have a wide selection of sauces, chocolates, coffees and some really gorgeous gift packs! Check out Tortuga Rum Ltd. for all of your rum needs this holiday season:) ABCD Diaries gives Tortuga Rum Cakes an A+!
