A very obvious one I suspect, but when I try to do the following the small caps are over-ruled by the boldface, so I get lowercase rhubarb rhubarb. Is there an easy way to get \scshape\bfseries?

\bfseries\scshape rhubarb rhubarb

You need a font which provides such a combination. – Marco Daniel Feb 17 '13 at 10:50
Not all fonts have boldface small caps; in particular the Computer Modern fonts don't have this combination. – egreg Feb 17 '13 at 10:50
thanks @egreg. Is there a reference document where I can find which fonts do? – Tahnoon Pasha Feb 17 '13 at 10:57
I've never seen such a document, but I've seen a few fonts that do have bold small caps (e.g. Minion, Scala) or bold faux small caps (e.g. the TeX Gyre fonts). – Nils L Feb 17 '13 at 11:27

Some fonts support this. The incomplete list is:

\bfseries\scshape Rhubarb Rhubarb
