Once the air gets that little touch of chill to it, we head straight to the kitchen and make this easy pumpkin bundt cake with cake mix.

Glazing a Bundt Cake

When it comes to icing or glazing any type of cake it needs to be cooled or refrigerated for at least 30 minutes so the glaze will set. The glaze should be thick but pourable otherwise it will be a big mess. Once the glaze has been prepared, (I like to put it in a glass measuring cup or a small bowl) you can begin pouring following these simple directions:

  1. Hold the bowl with icing over the center of one side of the cake. Begin pouring with one hand while slowly turning the plate or cake stand with the other hand.
  2. If you want some of the icing to flow down over the sides in certain areas of the cake, just slow down a bit, then continue going around the cake.
  3. Once you have reached where you started, you can stop or add a bit more depending on how much you like icing.
  4. If you plan on adding nuts or sprinkles, it is best to add them before the glaze has set. The glaze should be set within an hour.

  3. Looks amazing . Doesn’t sound too difficult either. Will have to try this sometime . Thanks for posting the recipe .

  4. 3 stars
    I was not able to find a yellow cake mix so used golden. Not sure if that is the reason this cake was very sweet and not near as dark as your photo. It’s very moist. If I ever make it again I may omit the sugar. Thank you for sharing!!

  5. 2 stars
    I noticed that many of the reviews state they like the look of the cake but don’t mention if they had baked it. Found the cake moist but crumbled very easily. Also the recipe calls for only one cup of icing sugar for the icing…..needs at least three cups. The cake was very tasty but don’t know whether I will make it again.

    • Thank you for commenting. I did mention to add more powered sugar if the glaze is too liquidy on the post, but forgot to add it on the recipe card. It’s fix now. Sorry about this!
