Frances' Italian Bakery in Newark - Rum Cake!

allisonfc21 | Jun 6, 2012 05:49 AM

Does anyone remember the bakery in Newark called Frances'?? It's been closed for several years since the owner/baker passed away. We grew up on their giant rum cakes and my dad's birthday is coming up - I would love to find another bakery in the area that makes cakes like Frances.

Any suggestions would be GREAT! The cakes were several layers and between was a layer of chocolate "pudding", vanilla "pudding", strawberries & bananas. It had almond savings on the side...and was incredible.
