Once upon a time, in her Bermuda cottage kitchen, Mrs. Horton created a concoction that has been dubbed by food experts as "moist," "buttery," and "the best there is." That creation was the Original Horton's Bermuda Black Rum Cake, the most highly sought after Bermudian dessert on the market today -- as it has been for more than 30 years. Today they are baked in a family run bakery still using the original recipe featuring Gosling’s Black Seal Rum.

Horton's specializes, of course, in the Original Bermuda Black Rum Cake, which you can order in two flavors & two different sizes. The Original Horton's Bermuda Black Rum and Chocolate Rum Cakes are made-from-scratch cakes, baked with fresh butter and are the very first to be produced in the Caribbean. Horton’s top secret recipe separates their cakes from all rest in that there are no known rum cake companies yet to have mastered a made-from-scratch recipe. Without one, supermarket cake mix becomes the batter that’s turned into the rum cakes sold by other companies. You can’t expect a cake mix product to trump a real butter hand mixed cake, for the results cannot begin to compare. The superior taste of Horton's Black Rum Cakes can only be the result of a perfect recipe and Mrs. Horton’s passionate devotion to excellence.

New York City's largest gourmet food show awarded Horton’s for ‘excellence’ on the basis of "taste, packaging and presentation." The Food Network after hearing the constant buzz about this incredible cake, placed personal calls to Mrs. Horton in hopes of filming a baking session. Despite the tremendous flattery it was explained that the procedure was top secret. Nevertheless a production crew along with celebrity chef, Giada De Laurentis was sent to the island to film a segment on Bermuda’s Best Shopping Bets in which Horton's Black Rum Cake was praised by Giada as “awesome!”

The Original Horton's Bermuda Black Rum Cakes, are routinely described by those who’ve tasted other brands as the best they ever tasted! Horton’s products have a one year shelf life and ship worldwide.
