Island Treasures Gourmet Rum Cakes are smooth, moist cakes baked in Virginia and hand glazed with rum from a legendary Hawaiian recipe creating an exquisite Made in America rum cake. Recently, I received their new 4 oz Chocolate Chip rum cake flavor in addition to the 4 oz Vanilla rum cake. Each cake is hand-glazed and made with real rum. They almost look like a pound cake.

About Island Treasures Gourmet
Island Treasures Gourmet™ Rum Cakes - This sweet treasure is made with high quality ingredients to create a Smooth, Moist, Full Flavored Gourmet Rum Cake for the whole family.
We use Real Rum! We put the rum in the before baking so the spirits are baked out leaving a smooth flavor without alcohol. Our Rum Cake is now available in seven flavors, two sizes and a sampler pack. They are made fresh in our own bakery and topped off with our special glaze, which is poured onto the rum cakes right from the oven.
In addition to great taste, our product has an attractive box which makes it great for gift giving. Island Treasures Gourmet Rum Cakes are often served at parties, enjoyed with morning coffee or an afternoon snack, and are the perfect ending to any meal. While developing the packaging, I wanted the internal container to be attractive as well as functional. The re-closeable container protects the rum cakes when shipping, is attractive for serving and provides storage once cut. We have received many compliments on the re-closeable container - just one more thing that sets Island Treasures Gourmet apart from the others -- and it is completely recyclable!
Having vacationed in the Caribbean for several years, we enjoyed Rum Cakes we had there. We would bring some home with us and before long they were gone, and we would have to wait for the next vacation to get more because there wasn’t anyplace to buy them. So I set out to make my own rum cake!
After about a year of trying every different type of rum, flour and formula, I had a Vanilla Rum Cake I was happy with. We had many taste testing panels, from family to friends to random people at school sports functions. It was a hit and a new venture began! We came up with a name, a design idea, sourced packaging, and in 2007 I started baking them in my house.
After two years of me baking and my husband selling, we built a bakery and moved out of the house. We were selling to Gift and Gourmet Shops and many HoneyBaked Ham franchise stores. After being in the bakery only two years, we were busting at the seams and had to build-out a bigger space and moved about two miles away. We sell our cakes wholesale to retailers in our Island Treasures Gourmet branded packaging and Private Label. We also sell retail on our website. I have a new website being developed over the past few months and it is just about ready to launch (hopefully within the next week).
You can find our Rum Cakes in the HoneyBaked Ham franchise And Corporate stores, Williamsburg Pottery, Southern Season, Becky's Hallmark Shops, various specialty gift and gourmet shops, and Fund Raisers. Many of the locations are listed on our website on the 'Buy at Retail' page. Most of the HoneyBaked Ham Corporate locations carry our Rum Cake in HoneyBaked Ham Rum Cake branded (private label) packaging.
Whether treating yourself, your guests, or gift giving, it is sure to be a winner - and with the variety of flavors to choose from you are sure to please everyone. Island Treasures Gourmet Rum Cake is perfect for all occasions! Be sure to keep plenty on hand -- they will be back for more!!
