“This is the "icing" for the birthday spice cake from my childhood. It's the only reason I still admit to having a birthday. To get this cake/ icing combo out of my dad.”

Directions

  1. Mix first four (4) ingredients and place on stove to boil. DO NOT STIR after it begins to boil.
  2. Time for 4 minutes after the first bubbles break the surface. Immediately take it off the stove, and add the vanilla, butter and rum flavour (if using).
  3. Pour it out onto a cooled spice cake. Allow to harden for as long as you can.
  4. Eat it all before someone else does.
  5. Call me if you can't finish it.
  6. *Also note you can hit this with a smidge of cinnamon, or nutmeg or cloves if you like, but I find the rum flavour makes the best combo with the cake.
