I made this cake exactly as stated in the recipe. After the cake was done I let it cool for 10-15 minutes then removed it from the pan. I poked about 40-50 holes in the top of the cake with a metal skewer and spooned on some glaze. Then I poured glaze into the bundt pan and replaced the cake. Then I poked 40-50 holes in the bottom of the cake and spooned the rest of the glaze on. I let it sit in the pan for a few hours then removed it onto my cake plate. I made the cake about 36 hours ahead of time and by the the time we went to eat it after Christmas dinner the rum flavor had mellowed quite a bit. There are some complaints in the reviews about the cake being too "rummy" but I think this can be solved by NOT digging into the cake immediately after making it. I also made homemade whipped cream with vanilla, and a pinch of cinnamon, ginger, and allspice to serve with it.
