So moist! And it stays moist! The cake itself is not overly sweet, just right, so the sweet and creamy glaze is a delicious complement. This would also be good with cream cheese frosting. I'm planning to try this in a bundt pan when I get one!

  6. Whisk in the powdered sugar until smooth; drizzle over cake immediately.
