I created this glaze for my Banana Glazed Praline Topped Nut Bread using Ginger Ale. It was awesome. It was over the top good. This recipe is only enough for a Bundt cake or loaf cake, but if you wanted too you could double the recipe, I am sure with great results. Just know that you need to work quickly so that it doesn't harden too much before covering the cake. The addition of the toasted nuts really enhanced the flavors, and the results were amazing. I am posting the recipe separately in the event you are looking for a nice glaze or frosting for your cake or muffins.
