Nutty Irishman Creme Cake

"This is as close as I can come to the cake I made for my Dad's 50 Birthday over 20 years ago. This recipe is a lot smaller. Then I did make it in a sheet cake and it had a frosting at the time not a glaze like here. If you want a really good frosting give this Creamy Chocolate Frosting recipe #51345 a try, but use Frangelica liqueur instead of the rum."

    This cake drew loud exclamations of, "Oh my gosh, this is so good!" when I served it tonight. I had to agree - this cake is simple and wonderful. Full of great flavors, with a lovely texture. I just happened to have some melted chocolate on hand and drizzled that over the top of the glaze before pressing some almonds on top of the cake. Just wonderful - thanks for sharing!

    Really decadent! I was worried at the amounts of alcohol, but it tastes wonderful. However, I would not feed it to kids.

    I made it for my Pokeno group and everyone just loved it! So easy to make. I know that I will be making this cake again & again.

    This cake is awesome! I followed it just as directed and a big hit with DH and his crew at work. I'm making another one for a co-worker's bday which is on St.Patty's Day. Thanks for a great treat!

    Yummy!! I usd white chocolate pudding, for something different, and used rum instead of frangelico. Hubby's 2 favorite things are rum and Bailey's so that's all we have in house right now, as I'm not buying any of my liquors until my bundle of joy gets here! :) Just delicious!
