Best Rum Cakes
Critics, upstate: Long lines form at the Wilmington Italian Festival when Papa’s Pastry Shop cuts the rum cake. Owner Nanik Oei uses chiffon as the base for the triple-layer doozie, which is interrupted by layers of vanilla cream and chocolate cream. The cake is soaked in Bacardi, then topped with almond butter cream and slivered almonds. (600 N. Union St., Wilmington, 777-0877)

Critics, downstate: Kathy Pasqualini lets customers determine how much rum they want at Pasqualini’s Bakery. Not surprisingly, most load up on the Bacardi. Pasqualini’s is a four-layer sponge soaked in rum and separated by layers of chocolate custard, vanilla custard and cherry filling. It’s topped with real whipped cream, red and green cherries, and chocolate shavings with toasted almonds running down the side. Grab an 8-inch cake for $34.95. No ID needed. (101 Atlantic Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-2111)
