For those of you fortunate enough to have a Trader Joes' in your area, I used the TJ's Meyer Lemon Cake & Baking Mix because that was all I had on hand. It's a 16 oz. cake mix but worked fine in this recipe. Also, instead of water I used Coconut Milk and I ended up using Appleton Estates Rum for both the glaze and the cake. I think I now know the difference between using granulated sugar and powdered sugar. Use granulated sugar to get a clear, glossy glaze, one poster may have used the powdered sugar which will give you a more thick white glaze. I prefer granulated. This was a HIT. I also poured half the glaze on the bottom of the bundt pan and poked holes all over, top, bottom and sides, like a crazy woman! The cake turned out perfectly infused with a combination of flavors of lemon, rum, and a hint of coconut which ended up being a very nice and light rum cake perfect for Spring.
