GIFT #1: RUM SISTERS, RUM CAKES & MORE
We’ve tried lots of rum cake. But the Rum Sisters make the best we’ve tried in recent memory.
The business was begun by two friends who shared a love of baking, cake and alcohol.
Not to mention the skills to make truly great whiskey-infused cakes.
Not to mention the premium ingredients, including fine rum, bourbon, Irish whiskey and Kahlúa.
These rum cakes are so good, we ate the whole sampler box—6 mini bundts-in two days. When there was not a crumb left, we cried plaintively: More! More!
There’s a tempting selection:

Matthews 1812 House is a second-generation family business. The Matthews family started in 1979 in the family farmhouse in Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut (the house was built in 1812).
From a line of two fruitcakes, “baking racks in the hallways and people sorting apricots and pecans on the dining room table,” the company now has a dedicated facility a mile away, and a full line of specialty cakes into cookies, bars, and other sweet treats.
The flavor we haven’t seen before is the Espresso Bundt Cake. If a cup of espresso can be transformed into a cake, this is it.
The moist cake has a bold coffee flavor, a hint of cinnamon, and less sugar than most bundt cakes. That’s why you can easily add caramel sauce, ice cream or whipped cream.
A large bundt cake is $29.00; two mini-bundts, called Duo Cakes, $15.00, are packaged with espresso caramel sauce that fits nicely in the top wells.
