I loaded a whole check in bag full of just these rum cakes. They are amazing and they are no joke. The Rum Swizzle is probably my fave. Since they don't cook the rum out they don't allow children to sample. The rum flavor is very rich and tasty. I probably will have to have them shipped when I run out.

“So yummy! So many types of rum cake to sample.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

During a NCL cruise to Bermuda over Memorial Day 2013, we visited the Bermuda Rum Cake Company. It is located inside an old machine shop in the Royal Navy Dockyard a short walk from the cruise ship dock. It shares space with the Dockyard glassworks. You can view glassblowing here.

I was amazed at the variety of types of rum cakes that they make using Bermuda's Gosling Black Seal Rum. Favors such as: rum and ginger, black rum fruit cake, rum sizzle, chocolate rum cake, to name a few. I think they try to have at least 6 types of cake available for you to sample.
They have packages of mini cakes, but unfortunately they were sold out on the day we were there.
I bought 2 cakes! When we got back to the Breakaway cruise ship, I cut one of the cakes and had it with vanilla ice cream. It was so good I went back and got 3 more for gifts.

I bought some rum cakes at a shop on the cruise ship dock. I thought they were Bermuda Rum Cakes. They were rum cakes, but were not made of Bermuda's Gosling Black Seal rum. So be careful to read the label carefully! The packages should be a gold box, with Bermuda Rum Cake Company in the center.
