Bacardi Pina Colada Rum Cake

For the Cake:

1 (18 ounce) box white cake mix
1 (3 1/2 ounce) box jello instant coconut cream pudding mix or 1 (3 1/2 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding
4 eggs
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup Bacardi dark rum, 80 proof
1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup flaked coconut

For the Frosting:

1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, in juice
1 (3 1/2 ounce) boxjello instant coconut cream pudding mix (same as the one for the cake) or 1 (3 1/2 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding (same as the one for the cake)
1/3 cup Bacardi dark rum, 80 proof
1 (9 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

1.  Blend all ingredients except coconut in large mixer bowl; beat 4 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer.
2.  Pour into two greased and floured 9 inch layer cake pans.
3.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly pressed. Do not underbake.
4.  Cool in pan for 15 minutes; remove and totally cool on racks.

1.  Combine all ingredients except whipped topping in bowl; beat until well blended. Fold in whipped topping. Fill and frost the cake and sprinkle with coconut.
2.  Make sure to now chill the cake. Refrigerate leftover cake.
3.  NOTE: With the vanilla filling, increase water to 3/4 cup; add 1 cup flaked coconut to batter.

I just do the glaze instead of the frosting.


1/4 lb butter
1/4 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup Bacardi dark rum

GLAZE: Melt butter in medium sauce pan. Stir in 1/4 cup water and sugar. Boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in 1/2 cup rum.

Remove and pour over rum cake.  I usually let the rum cake cool down first, carefully remove it from the bundt pan, pour in the glaze and put the cake back in the pan.

Cooking with Fish Sauce

DON’T!!!   unless it’s at the END of your dish.   I made the mistake of browning the meat and grabbing the Fish Sauce instead of the Teriyaki Sauce and WOW that STUNK!!!    So unless you use it at the END of the cooking process, DON’T COOK WITH IT!!

Sean Tucker, Aerobatics Extraordinaire

I’ve seen him perform several times, each show was somehow better than the last.  This guy is ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!   He does stuff with his plane that should kill anybody else and disintegrate that plane in mid-air.

The first half of the attached video is pretty ho-hum (except for the presentation), it’s the second half that will make your eyes fly out on springs like someone from a Warner Brothers’ cartoon!
