TOPPING:
Mix all ingredients together thoroughly. Spread over cake while cake is still warm (I do mine as soon as I take it out of the oven). Place cake back in oven on broil until lightly brown. (Keep an close eye on the cake while it is under the broiler, it will burn pretty fast).

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Do yourself a favor and make the cake a day or two before you want to eat it. It is an awesome cake the first day but so much better a day or two later. This is my absolute favorite cake, I always have the ingredients in the house so if I need to take a dish somewhere this is my go to dish. I used to make this cake every year for my birthday.
