Apple Cider Cake!

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Koechin Chef

A wonderful blend of Fall Flavors. The glaze sets up like a Fondant. And is extra yummy! :-)

Top Review by Linky

This was a yummy cake, as stated. I couldn't get hazelnut extract, so subbed vanilla. I followed the directions for the fondant/glaze. The problem was when I cut the cake into slices, the glaze fell off! I will try this again, but try a different glaze. Danke, Koechin!
