I used this to cover a brown sugar pound cake (Recipe #42351). It is an amazing and buttery glaze.

Kitten, you've come through again! DH brought home a couple of store bought pound cakes, and not Sara Lee, either. How can they sell such stuff!? Dry, flavorless. Good thing they were on sale... I was going to put them out for the chickens. They'll eat anything. Then I thought of Zaar. So a bit of rum and some soaking and this glaze, and viola! Pound cakes resurected. But it's a bit like making a silk purse out of one of the pig's ears.I guess it was the challenge. Next time--one of MY cakes. I'm not going to waste this on that. Well, not wasted, but you know what I mean... This made enough for two small loaf cakes with a bit oner.
