Poetry would be composed entirely of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write.

Lisa’s Rum Cake

For some families, a new generation means baby showers and tiny clothes. For the Power family, it means shock-freezing technology, online ordering, and a high-tech factory specially tuned to quickly churn out delicate rum cakes. In fact, the family recipes Lisa Power uses are the only old-fashioned parts of her eponymous business, which she runs with her husband and their three daughters. Together, they separate moist layers of cake with rich custard, finishing off each creation with a topcoat of thick icing. Creative combinations of custard, cake, and sometimes fruit, candy, and sauces help build an eclectic spread of flavors. Drizzles of caramel over slices of apple make the aptly named caramel-apple cake an autumnally flavored confection, and the stars-and-stripes cake alternates strips of red velvet with vanilla custard and whole organic blueberries. Thanks to the factory’s packing and freezing technology, customers across the nation can indulge in Lisa’s signature desserts; they have shipped cakes to more than 300 cities in 40 states, but still just the one planet.

Customer Reviews

Their cakes are superb, and their service and accommodations are wonderful. A lagacy of family bakers. They lend a very rare specialty and name with quality to our state! People come back to the state with wanting to experience their cakes during thei visits, equating the state with this regional delight. It's a pretty good drive from the center of Phoenix to pick up a Lisa's Rum Cake, but truly worth it! One of my answers to you, is try one! They are Great!
