When Rum and Cake Collide in Bundaberg

When the team at Bundaberg Rum contacted The Cheesecake Shop Bundaberg for a cake to celebrate their 130th birthday, initial thoughts were to have a standard rectangle slab cake. That is until the team at the local bakery joked about doing a supersized replica of the iconic rum bottle, which then set the wheels in motion for one spectacular cake.

At 85cm tall, the cake is three times the size of a 700ml bottle of Bundaberg Rum and was constructed using 11 and a half Belgian chocolate mudcakes and a whole lot of chocolate ganache and fondant. Senior Decorator Erin was the mastermind decorator behind the cake and was assisted by store owner Glenda Dunphy and Assistant Store Manager Julie.

“It was very exciting creating the cake for such a special occasion” says Glenda.

“We’ve never done anything of that scale before and are glad that it came together so well.”

Whether you’re after a cheesecake, torte, mudcake, pavlova or custom-made cake, Glenda and the team at The Cheesecake Shop Bundaberg have got the cake for you.
