Cook's Tips: If using a microwave oven without a built-in turntable, rotate cake
a quarter turn once after each 3-minute interval of cooking.
To easily drizzle glaze onto cake, pour glaze into one corner of a small,
resealable plastic bag. Twist top of bag to seal.
Cut a small piece off the corner of the bag to allow the glaze to run through.
