Brown Sugar Rum Glaze

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Roxanne J.R.

I found this recipe during the Christmas 2009 season in a local newspaper. I haven't tried it myself yet but it looks delicious. The recipe says it is a great glaze for rum cake but I bet it would be fabulous over vanilla pound cake too.

I've had a Zaar cake recipe I've been wanting to make for a while now, and this recipe provided the perfect "frosting on the cake!" Made for my mother-in-law's Celebration of Life funeral luncheon held here at our house today. I was sooo very pleased with how this Rum Frostinig/Glaze complimented the Chocolate Orange Cream Cheese Pound Cake #14964, and so very proud that I could share Zaar AND this recipe with family and friends on this memorable day. This Glaze cooks up and pours really well and the 3 tablespoons of Rum is all that is needed to give it that extra kick. Everyone LOVED it! Thanks my "adopted" PAC baby for sharing. Made for Spring, 2010 PAC.
