Alma Hackney's rum cake ~ Our most popular item! Our hands-down favorite (among our family AND our customers): Alma Hackney, my buddy Dwight’s church choir director, made a mean rum cake for her friends—she’d send Dwight’s dad into the store for the booze while she waited in the car. Alma’s gone now but left her recipe with us, and we promised not to change a thing. The New York Times and Garden & Gun Magazine love our rum cake! A little bit of rum inside a buttery yellow cake, with a rum glaze brushed all over—enough to soak through and still put a crackly finish on top. ~ $24 plus $10.60 shipping
Red Truck Bakery shipping policy and transit times: We appreciate every order and we watch it carefully; please know that we are just three bakers in a small bakery producing some very unique and popular items, and we emphasize quality over quantity. We bake to order and try to get each order out within a day, but demand and availability of ingredients may mean an additional day is needed to produce your item. In most cases, we process orders the afternoon before we bake and come in at 2 am to bake online orders as well as items for our bakery, so know that we rarely can turn around an order the same day. We try not to ship over weekends to avoid having our baked goods sit for two days in a UPS warehouse. We ship UPS Ground from Virginia so please allow plenty of time for your item to reach its destination following these shipping times, but please add in an extra day or two for us to properly bake and prepare your order:
