Look up zuppa inglese. That’s probably more like what you are calling Italian rum cake than is a baba.

there are two types of dessert that use that name. One is a trifle. Good but not really a cake. The other is a rum-soaked cake, like this:

which is considered “original “ probably depends on where you grew up...Italy’s original is probably very different from New York’s original. :)
