Foodessa said...

I do have plenty of pumpkin which I'm starting to slowly cook and portion away...ready to go just for recipes like these ;o)
The use of dark Rum is so much better suited than the white Rum variety...great decision on your part ;)
The cake looks ready for my fork once again. LOL

Have a lovely Sunday,
