    This recipe was from my Yia Yia (Grandmother in Greek). This was served as a traditional holiday cake. Usually around Christmas time. My only advice for you is if you have never before made a syrup glaze, find a recipe for a simple one and practice first. And I prefer to use Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum or a decent spiced Cognac.
