    This is a great glaze. I made a pound cake but didn't have what the recipe required for the glaze. This recipe was perfect. The group I made it for were scrambling for a second piece.  -  21 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I first tasted this glaze at a pot-luck, and it was wonderful. The flavors blend beautifully, but if you try, you can identify each one!  -  21 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I didn't have coconut extract but I used all the other flavors. I tried it while hot, right out of the pan and was hesitant on using it on my pumpkin bread. The flavors were very powerful. I'd made two loafs of bread and opted to add the glaze to only one, just in case I didn't like it. I was surprised. Once the bread absorbed the glaze, the flavors weren't as powering and was actually very good.  -  09 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
