Most of you know Blogger has been down and we were unable to post, but it really didn't effect me cause I'm having "Cricut Block". lol I have not had the urge to get out the Cricut and make anything. I think it's the crappy Michigan weather, its very depressing. :( I have had the urge to bake a bunch of stuff! I can't eat it all so I have been soliciting my friends to take my treats. lol I made a lemon pound cake with a lemon glaze that turned out great! I got 2 thumbs up from my treat tester. ;) So I thought I would branch out and try something new. Cake with liquor! I found this recipe on Cooks.com HERE is the link. I'm not sure it came out right. lol I followed the directions and the cake looks ok, but the glaze did not turn out at all. I have some of the new Duncan Hines Chocolate glaze in the kitchen cabinet so I might try that. Any ideas on a good glaze that would work well with this cake, would be greatly appreciated. :) Pics below. TFL
