mini cakes for gift giving

Amy makes the best Black Russian Rum Cakes for our school boutique every year and they sell out quickly!  Aren't they cute in these little ceramic bread dishes?   They are soooo delicious, and she shared the recipe with me to share with all of you. 

Amy's Black Russian Cake
1 box yellow cake mix 
1 large package chocolate pudding mix
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup strong coffee (prepared and cooled)
1/4 cup Vodka
1/4 cup Kahlua
Glaze:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon rum extract 

Mix together all ingredients. I make these in cupcake form and in mini loafs (makes 6 mini loafs filled 3/4 high) 35 minutes, cupcakes less time. Remove from pan and cool slightly.
Glaze:  Bring ingredients for glaze to a boil and pour over cake.  (I use about 1/2, some like more)
Dust with powdered sugar after it cools.  Serve with blackberries, raspberries and mint.  Great cake that some say tastes even better the next day.  Just freshen up with more powdered sugar and berries.
