Hey, everyone! I am so excited to tell you about this wonderful brown sugar and maple glaze cake recipe that I found over on the Making Memories With Your Kids blog. Erin, the founder of the blog is a dessert genius! At first glance, I thought this cake would be pretty hard to make but much to my amazement, it was a cinch! Just check out all that glaze on this cake, too! Mounds of the stuff. You may need a spoon just for eating the glaze!

Erin, from Making Memories With Your Kids, says you can cut the glaze recipe in half if you want less of it.
