Italian Rum Cake - North End

NahantNative | Feb 27, 2011 02:20 PM

Hi All -

So I grew up on italian rum cakes for my birthday (this may explain a lot about me). As I remember the cake, it had a nice custard filling (almost non ricotta canolli like) with stawberries and this was layered within white cake that was obviously drizzled with a heavy hand of rum. I remember my italian mother and everyone saying the "frosting" has to be whiped cream, probably b/c my birthday was in the dead of the summer.

So I am really missing this cake so I am going to buy myself one and go to town. Does anyone know who makes the best Italian rum cakes in the North End?
