Receiving a message from a customer to tell me how much they enjoyed one of my cakes! :)
Vie’s Jamaican Rum Cakes are delicious treats for special occasions and offer cake and rum lovers a taste of Jamaica on your doorstep!
I'm Elaine and I'm the founder of Vie’s Jamaican Rum Cakes and Vie’s 5th daughter.
My mum, Vie, was born in 1943 in Jamaica and in the 1960s she moved to the U.K. which became her home for over 55 years.
My mum passed away in 2018, but when she was alive, she was well-known for her scRUMptious cakes which were generously infused with the finest Jamaican white rum! (Ironically, mum was tee-total and didn't eat the cakes she made!)
I moved to Cumbria in 2019 and to honour my mum for the generous and talented cake maker she was, I was inspired to turn my loss into a legacy by reproducing my mum’s cakes based on her traditional recipe. Hence, the birth of Vie’s Jamaican Rum Cakes – The Rummiest Cakes In Cumbria.
The utmost care has been taken to ensure that the six original and three gluten-free versions of the cake are as fruity, flavoursome and fantastic as Elaine’s mother’s used to be.
Rummy (imbued with spiced gold rum), Rummier (infused with dark rum) or Rummiest (laced with white rum) – the choice is yours!
