This is good even though it doesnt yeild much, I would suggest doubling it to have enough. I put this on top of a cinnamon roll recipe from this site and it turned out perfect. Two thumbs up.

Yum.  I used this to frost the Baked Doughnut Nuggets and it reminded me of the Krispy Kreme chocolate glaze, though I made it thicker than that (cuz I can  :)).

Wonderful glaze!  I used this on a 9" cake from a springform pan.  I had to double the recipe to cover the top of the cake.  One recipe doesn't go very far.  I don't use corn syrup so I used maple syrup instead and added a Tbs of brown sugar.  Worked great!

I used to not like cake because it was always so dry.  It's wonderful cakes like this one that are gradually showing me the error of my ways!!  Seriously, it is tasty.  And supermoist (the name doesn't lie), even after a few days.  It's also so easy to make.  I will definitely be making this one again and maybe try some type of icing or decoration.  Thanks for posting this :)

I just have to say how lovely Katia's cake picture is.  Such talented, creative chefs we have on vegweb :) 

This glaze is very tasty, too - made it many times.

Hahaha, good point. I think I might use this idea for my boyfriend's upcoming graduation (I am not very good writing in icing, so this may make a prettier cake). :-)

Thanks Blondie! Oh, one caveat if you do decorate a cake in this way - I wouldn't reccomend putting a candle on it and blowing it out :)
