I use this recipe quite often on a spiced pound cake it compliments quite well. My grandparents love it; I make it with cake every time I visit them. This is a basic buttercream recipe with rum extract and a few extra spices added to it. I prefer a stronger rum flavor, so you should adjust the amount of rum extract to your liking.

4 stars only b/c I added 2 tsp rum extract and still thought it was a touch strong but great consistency and flavor....will use 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 tsp rum extract next time. Thank you! Read More
