Irish Cream Bundt Cake

After all of the cooking I did for the Supper Club yesterday, I wanted to make an easy dessert to bring over to my in-laws' house for Easter dinner. This recipe really fit the bill - it was really rich and tasty, and everyone loved it! I'll definitely be making it again! I just drizzled the glaze over the top after poking holes in the cake - it was too sticky to brush on. Yum!
