Turning my loss into Legacy


Mum’s middle name was Viola but Dad called her Vie (as in pie).

She was born in 1943 in Jamaica and moved to the U.K. in the 1960s, making England her home. 

Sadly, in 2018, Mum passed away and I moved to Cumbria the following year. To honour Mum as the generous and talented cake maker she was, I was inspired to turn my loss into a legacy.  

Well-known for her scRUMptious cakes which were generously infused with the finest Jamaican white rum, I am now reproducing Mum’s cakes based on her traditional recipe. Hence, the birth of Vie’s Jamaican Rum Cakes.

The utmost care has been taken to ensure that both the original and gluten-free versions of the cake are as fruity, flavoursome and fantastic as my mother’s used to be.

Vie’s Jamaican Rum Cakes are delicious treats for special occasions, offering cake lovers a taste of Jamaica on your doorstep!

Committed to local and global sustainability

Vie’s Jamaican Rum Cakes  are made with local, free-range eggs and flour.

Our special edition Christmas cake is made with Jefferson’s Extra Fine Dark Rum from The Rum Story in Whitehaven.

The cakes are baked in a local, award-winning bakery which has achieved “green certification” and has a gluten-free kitchen.

They are packaged using biodegradable, compostable, cellulose (cellophane) food grade bags and raffia.
