Heather's Helpful Hints

It's a good idea to have some waxed paper under your cake when you are pouring the glaze on top. This will catch everything that falls off the cake and makes for easier cleanup. If you'd like to jazz up your frosting a bit, add one teaspoon of cinnamon to the frosting after microwaving. You can also top your cake with nuts, if you desire. I added about ¼ cup chopped pecans to the top.
