Holiday Mincemeat Cake with Eggnog Rum Sauce

I wanted to start a new tradition with my family. I love mincemeat, and this cake is a way to share that enjoyment with my friends and family[. Since I was a working mother, I also wanted to create a dessert that was convenient. I am now asked for the recipe every time I make it.]
