I make this cake every year for a dessert auction at my church, and it routinely sells for $500 or more. I'm lazy about the glaze. Once I poke holes in the cake I pour almost all of the glaze into my Bundt pan, put the cake back in and let it sit for a while until the glaze is absorbed. The little bit I don't pour into the pan gets spooned onto the bottom of the cake. This cake will make you look like a super star.

This was an awesome cake. Made it for St Pat's Day for friends and family who raved. Like others who posted, I did not use all of the glaze, but used a pastry brush after poking holes in cake and adding glaze in layers to use up as much as possible without drowning the cake! It was delectible and we will have again and again! Thanks!

I made this cake 3 times last week, it was a total hit. I did modify it the last time because I ran out of vanilla pudding. I substituted chocolate pudding and added a teaspoon of instant coffee. My cook time for the cake was only 40 minutes and I only cooked the icing for about 3 1/2 minutes. Everyone loved it!

This was so easy and the best! I also had a lot of the glaze left over - but that was the best part. We served the cake with vanilla ice cream and drizzled the glaze over the ice cream. Delicious and beautiful too!

Oh my... I cannot begin to describe the goodness that is this cake! I loved every bite! I didn't use pecans because they freak me out, and I only used about half the glaze (saved the rest for another cake!) and it was phenomenal. Delicious.

Another Sunday dinner, another delicious dessert! My mom recently discovered she is allergic to chocolate so I've been looking for something equally tempting - this is it! I screwed up the glaze and added everything in at once, so I added more Bailey's at the end. Everyone loved it! Thanks for sharing!

YUM. I thought I had Irish cream in the house, but turned out to have amaretto instead. So I used that instead, and rather than pecans I used honey glazed almonds. This was SO good, and very impressive looking.

If using a cake mix that includes pudding, do not add the packet of pudding. Also, use 3 eggs (instead of 4) and 1/3 cup vegetable oil (instead of 1/2 cup).

A waste of good Bailey's Irish Cream...I prepared this cake for my sister-in-law's 50th birthday party (Greek themed toga party so I had to bring a bundt cake. She is Greek and her husband is Irish). I read the many favorable reviews here and had high expectations. The only things that occur to me to explain why the cake was so disappointing: (1)I did use a pudding yellow cake mix as well as the pudding mix. If anything I would think this would make the cake more moist but it wasn't moist and (2) I don't use cake mixes, and the artificial taste of the mix was noticeable. The glaze was delicious, though.
