Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Grandmother Joy first made this in Shawnee just after we bought our first flocked Christmas tree at Flower City at 50th & May in OKC. Grandmother walked across the street to the liquor store and bought rum. She told Granddad she thought she was going to get hit by a car walking back across and street, and family and friends would discover she had been carrying a bottle of liquor. Rum cake is a Burgess tradition!
