I was on the fence with this recipe. I don't eat sweet potatoes all that often, but Nathan loves them and asked if I could make this cake.
I made the cake as written, glaze and all. Usually I would omit the rum from the cake since I don't drink, but I was making this for Nathan and I thought he would enjoy the cake, glaze and all.
The cake itself was delicious. It was the glaze I had a problem with. The rum flavor was way to strong for me and I ended up just eating the inside of the cake. Nathan, on the other hand, really liked the cake. Considering he was the one I was making it for, I would call that a success.
