this is delicious, and looks so appetizing. i mixed confectioners sugar and bailey's and spooned it over the top, then sprinkled some additional confectioners sugar. both kids and adults loved it. this is a keeper, thanks for this easy recipe

This was a very easy cake. Was good but not wonderful. I'm a tough cookie I guess!

Delcious, moist, rich cake. This was a big hit with our family and was a breeze to put together. I only had the type of cake mix with pudding already in it, so I tried it anyway and it worked out beautifully. I also had no vodka, so I substituted brandy, which also worked out well. I was worried that this might be heavily laden with a strong alcohol taste, but it was not. You certainly can tell that there is Irish Crema in the batter, but it wasn't overpowering at all - very good balance with the chocolate. Thanks!

This is a fabulous recipe. It's so moist! I've made this several times now and everyone loves it. I usually don't drizzle the bailey's and powdered sugar on, but it's still delicious. Thanks Barb!!!

I feel guilty giving this a less than favorable review, but my cake was a disaster. I had all the exact ingredients in the exact amounts . The top burned and the inside was liquid. It had no flavor despite a cake mix and pudding. It is now birdfood.

Very, very good cake. I gave 2/3rds of it to friends who are still raving whether they had plain or with ice cream. My 96 year old friend said poke holes in the cake and let the frosting sink into the holes. I wonder what I did wrong. The sugar and Bailey's was terrific, even if it was on the plate and not the cake. This cake was fun, easy and delicious.

This cake was delicious, moist and very easy to make. The glaze really finished it off. Great taste for such little effort. This would make a wonderful hostess gift given on a festive plate at holiday time. Thanks for a great recipe!

This is possibly the easiest cake I've ever made, and also very moist and delicious. The flavor is a sophisticated blend of subtle chocolate and stronger Bailey's. I didn't change a thing and I can't imagine doing so. I did make a light glaze of Bailey's and powdered sugar. I put most of this on the cake, but when I only had a couple tablespoons or so left, I also mixed in some unsweetened cocoa powder and a bit of water. So I ended up with 2 different flavors and colors of glaze on the cake, and then I also put a few sprinkles on top to add a little color. Thank you for a great recipe that everyone enjoyed.

This was a big hit at our dinner party. It was really easy to make. Not too sweet. The glaze really makes the cake.
