Legendary Italian Rum Cake

Montilio’s Baking Company ships its famous Italian Rum Cake nationwide on Goldbelly! Made from a recipe that has been a part of Montilio’s for over 70 years, this class Italian Rum Cake is still one of the Boston bakery’s top sellers. Montilio’s Italian Rum Cake starts with sponge cake that’s soaked in secret rum syrup, then filled with layers of Italian chocolate and vanilla custard, and frosted with real whipped cream. The Classic Italian Rum Cake is garnished with a sprinkle of shaved white and dark chocolate and cherries on top.

Since 1947, Montilio’s Baking Company has been baking up some of the Boston area’s most beloved cakes. This third-generation family-owned-and-operated bakery and cake shop has four locations near Boston. At each location, Montilio’s Baking Company still makes their French and Italian pastries and wedding cakes the old-fashioned way, by hand, using only simple ingredients. Many of these recipes haven’t changed in more than 70 years, and you can taste the decades of tradition in every bite.

The Montilio's Bakery Company rum/custard birthday cake was a big hit for my best friend in the Chicago suburbs! She lived it, saying, “It was to die for!” I am in Japan, but wanted this to be an extra special birthday for her. It certainly achieved that! Thank you so much!

The cake showed up right on my wife's birthday, in the morning, in great condition. Thanks! The delivery person put the cake on its side, despite the numerous labels. Thankfully it was packed securely enough that this did not adversely affect the cake. It was nice to have the information sheet explaining the cake's history.

The cake arrived in perfect condition and on time! Montilio’s is my favorite bakery in the Boston area. And a Montilio’s birthday cake was our choice for everyone’s birthday growing up. Now that I live in another state, I don’t get one! So finding Goldbelly and the Montilio’s cake on the site was terrific? Thanks so much for your excellent service! And the Presidential Inaugural Ball cake was wonderful! I highly recommend it.

Ordered Montilio's Italian Rum Cream Cake for my husband for Father's day. He loved it. I was worried about how well the cake would hope up on a 100 degree day. It arrived and the ice packets were still cold. The cake was perfect :D

The cake I ordered was delivered in perfect condition, packed in dry ice. It’s the second time I’ve ordered the Italian rum cake and it is absolutely delicious, similar to the one my family ordered for birthdays and special occasions when we lived in Manhattan during my childhood until we relocated to another state.
